Woman Dies, Cesar Iban Torres Arrested in 101 Freeway Crash [Encino, CA]

Officers Arrest Cesar Iban Torres in Encino Fatal Crash

Encino, CA (August 13, 2021) – On Thursday, a woman died, while police arrested 31-year-old Cesar Iban Torres of Los Angeles, in a crash on 101 Freeway.

The fatal crash took place at about 7 p.m. west of Haskell Avenue.

A 2003 Lincoln Navigator SUV driven by Torres was traveling the wrong direction on the freeway. 

The oncoming semi-truck driver attempted to avoid the accident but could not due to the 2003 Lincoln’s erratic driving.

As a result, it struck the big rig near the 405 Freeway. Officers said one adult and four children were injured.

Right away, rescuers took all the children to a hospital as a precaution, but with minor injuries.

Unfortunately, officers pronounced an adult woman who was trapped, dead at the scene. The authorities withheld her identity until her family is notified.

Moreover, reports said that the all of those injured and the deceased woman were occupants in the SUV.

The semi-truck driver refused medical transport.

Torres exited his vehicle after the crash and attempted to flee. He also fought with the authorities, but was arrested at the scene with the use of a Taser.

Responders took him to a local hospital for treatment after being taken into custody.

Meanwhile, officers said it was unclear if drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.


We at Sweet Lawyers would like to send our sincere condolences to the bereaved. May you find courage during this time of sorrow.

Hire Your Wrongful Death Attorney

In a time where an unexpected tragedy befalls such as this one, you may be left feeling powerless. However, it is important to recognize that if your family loses a member in an accident, you may recover damages through a wrongful death suit.

A 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.

Meanwhile, nearly 1.25 million people are killed in car accidents each year. That means, on average, auto accidents cause 3,287 deaths per day. As a matter of fact, road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death in the U.S. for people aged 1-54.

That is why we encourage you to speak with our attorneys. A lawyer serves as your legal representation, working to prove what you are owed in the wake of a family member’s death
