Edmond Pritchard Dies, Karen Almas Hospitalized after Maricopa Truck Crash on Highway 166 and Pentland Road

Maricopa, California (May 30, 2020) – Authorities are investigating a Thursday afternoon truck accident that killed Edmond Russell Pritchard, 63, of Bakersfield, and left Karen Almas, 63, of San Luis Obispo, injured in Maricopa.

At about 1:43 p.m., on May 28, the California Highway Patrol responded to the deadly crash on Highway 166 and Pentland Road.

The police said Pritchard was traveling westbound on Highway 166 when his red Chevrolet pickup truck swerved into the eastbound lanes.

The Chevrolet reportedly struck the side of an eastbound Freightliner Cascadia and crashed head-on into a Subaru, operated by Karen Almas, 63, of San Luis Obispo.

Pritchard was pronounced dead at the scene.

Almas was taken to Kern Medical with injuries ranging from minor to moderate. She was wearing her seat belt and her airbag deployed, the police said

Ralph Seeley, of Chandler, Arizona, the Freightliner driver, was uninjured in the mishap. His truck was transporting dog food at the time.

More details about the accident were not immediately available.

An investigation into the crash is underway.

According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary to clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, regardless of the circumstances involved, liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.
