Fatal Vehicle Crash near Tipton, on Highway 99, and Avenue 152 Off-ramp

Tulare County Wrongful Death Lawyer John Rozier has the following accident report; On Saturday, February 20, 2016, a vehicle crash ended in fatality, near Goshen.  The automobile collision happened on Highway 99, in Tipton, in the afternoon hours.

A black, 2000 Chevrolet truck, driven by Ross Raposas, 67, of Las Vegas, Nevada, was southbound on the highway.  He drove onto the off-ramp at Avenue 152/Olive Street.  The pickup took the curve at a high rate of a speed, and Rasposas lost control.

The Chevy veered across the median onto the on-ramp of the freeway, and smashed into a 2004 Honda Accord.

The Honda, which was driven by Andrea Bahena, 26 years old, had been attempting to enter State Route 99 at the time of the incident.

Upon impact, the two vehicles rolled over.  The Accord came to rest on its side.  And the pickup truck ended up on its roof.

25 year old Martin Lara Jr., of Tipton, who was a passenger in the car, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Behena sustained severe injuries.  She was transported to the hospital for treatment.

There were also two children in the Honda; Roxana Bahena, 7, complained of pain and Leylie Lara,1, had minor scratches.

Raposas sustained minor injuries as well.

Mr. Rozier is located in Visalia and would like to speak to the family of the accident victim. Please give him a call at 559-713-0150, or contact us online.
