HESPERIA, California – Sergio Marin, 32, of Fontana died early New Year’s Day morning in a head-on car crash with another vehicle on Cottonwood Avenue, according to a press release issued by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner Department.

About 1:44 a.m., Marin was traveling in the wrong direction in the southbound lanes of Cottonwood Avenue when his 1994 Honda Civic collided head-on with a 1997 Acura carrying two adults and three juveniles, the coroner and the Press Enterprise reported. Marin died at the scene of the two-vehicle crash, but the five victims in the other vehicle were transported to different nearby hospitals with serious injuries, the Press Enterprise reported.

“New Year’s Eve night is one of the most dangerous times to be traveling,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “My condolences to the family of the man who died and prayers to those who survived that they fully recover from their injuries.”

Those who are injured in traffic accidents due to someone else’s negligence may recover compensation for their medical costs, lost wages and other financial losses in a personal injury lawsuit against the driver’s insurance carrier. Studies have shown that victims who are represented by an attorney typically recover roughly 3.5 times more in compensation than those who work directly with an insurance adjuster, Seegmiller said.

Witnesses to the New Year’s Day car accident are asked to contact Deputy Kevin McCurdy at 760-947-1500.
