Martin Diaz Barajas Jr Injured in Interstate 5 Fatal Crash

Patterson, CA (October 24, 2021)– On Saturday, 54-year-old Gilroy man dies, and 30-year-old Martin Diaz Barajas Jr. of Sacramento suffered injuries in Interstate 5 rear-end crash.

Officers received the crash report at about 9:43 p.m. about an overturned vehicle on the southbound side of the freeway. 

Minutes later, officers got a report about a vehicle with front-end damage with an unresponsive occupant.

Officers said the rescuers found the Gilroy man, who was driving a 1983 Jeep, on the west shoulder near the vehicle. 

He was thrown from his vehicle during the accident and lost his life at the scene. 

The preliminary investigators said the Jeep driver was southbound in the right lane.

At the same time, Barajas Jr. was also in the right lane.

However, the right front of his 2018 Ford rear-ended the Jeep.

As a result, the Jeep went onto the west shoulder and overturned. Barajas lost control of his vehicle as it went into the center divider. 

His vehicle overturned several times before hitting a high-tension cable barrier and finally stopped. 

Immediately, rescuers took Barajas by air ambulance to Memorial Medical Center in Modesto. 

Meanwhile, officers said that Barajas was wearing his safety restraint when the crash happened. 

Officers are still investigating the crash.

What Should the Bereaved Do?

While the loss of a loved one is irreversible, it is in the best interest of you and your family to be aware of what to do next.

That is why it is important to know that if your family loses a member in an accident like the crash on Interstate 5, you may still recover damages through a wrongful death suit.

wrongful death suit allows families to hold parties liable for the irrevocable damages they have caused. It is a civil action brought forth by relatives of a deceased victim whose death was caused by the negligence of another party. It alleviates most or all of the financial burden the death of a relative has generated.
