Hit and Run

Cerritos, CA (September 29, 2019) – A man was killed while trying to help someone on the side of the road in Cerritos. The fatal accident occurred just after midnight on September 29 on the 91 Freeway.

Miguel Gutierrez, 34, of Norwalk, was on his way home from Disneyland when he stopped on the shoulder of the eastbound 91 Freeway, near Bloomfield Avenue, to assist a 16-year-old boy who had run out of gas. A truck struck his car, then hit Gutierrez and dragged him on the freeway. The truck never stopped.

Gutierrez died at the accident scene. The suspected hit and run vehicle has not yet been found. It is described as a white box or work-type truck with wooden rails along the bed. 

Gutierrez’ wife, Lorraine Barajas, and other relatives witnessed the accident. Barajas had taken Gutierrez to Disneyland to celebrate finishing his automotive courses at Cerritos College.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones of Miguel Gutierrez.

New California Law Extends Time For Filing Child Sexual Abuse Claims

On October 13, 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a law allowing victims of child sex abuse additional time to report the abuse and file lawsuits. A flurry of allegations of Catholic priest sexual abuse of minors, as well as former U.S. Olympic gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar’s 2018 conviction, led to the introduction of the legislation.
