Family files suit in crash


first_imgHe later was ordered to pay $83,000 in restitution to the family of the victim, Jayson Maddela, and other people injured in the crash. When the crash occurred, Jayson, a former Desert Rose Elementary School student, was making his final visit to Palmdale, where he had lived most of his life. Minutes earlier, Jayson’s parents had signed papers to sell their Palmdale home. Jayson, his mother and two older brothers had moved to Gardena two months earlier while Jayson’s father stayed in the house pending the sale. With Mendoza behind the wheel, the SUV slammed head-on into Jayson’s mother’s Honda Accord, which was stopped in a left-turn lane on Avenue S at 30th Street East, sheriff’s deputies said. The impact shoved the Honda backward into a pickup truck that was stopped behind it, fatally injuring Jayson, who was in the back seat. Before hitting the Honda, the GMC Suburban had driven into the left-turn lane to pass two other vehicles traveling in front of it, then clipped the back of a truck, deputies said. The charge on which Mendoza was convicted will count as a strike under the state’s “three strikes, you’re out” law. Mendoza was convicted in 1998 of assault with a deadly weapon and in 2004 of possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, prosecutors said.

LANCASTER – The family of a 10-year-old boy who died in a drunk-driving crash has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver, a Palmdale ex-convict who was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Juan Mendoza had a blood-alcohol level of 0.13percent – above the 0.08 legal limit – and also showed indications of drug use when he was tested after the March11,2005, crash, which occurred as Mendoza’s sport utility vehicle was passing other vehicles at a Palmdale intersection. The lawsuit names as defendants Mendoza and the owner of the GMC Suburban. Mendoza was sentenced in June 2005 after pleading no contest to gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated after prosecutors agreed to dismiss an additional charge of driving under the influence with injury. last_img read more
