At 3:50 a.m. on Saturday morning, a drunk driver plowed into another vehicle, killing one and injuring two others. The Sacramento drunk driving accident occurred on SR-99 just north of Stockton Boulevard.

The fatal drunk driving accident was caused by 34-year-old Jian Saeteurn, who was driving a 2004 Infinity under the influence of alcohol. While driving at high speeds, Saeteurn rear ended Rajendra Parsad, 58, who was driving a 2006 Dodge.

As a result of the impact of Saeteurn rear ending the Dodge, Parsad veered across the northbound lanes of traffic, went through the guard rail along the east side of the roadway, and smashed into a concrete pillar supporting the Stockton Boulevard overpass.

The toll of this accident was significant. A passenger in Parsad’s vehicle was killed. In addition, Parsad suffered serious injuries, and another 26-year-old passenger suffered minor injuries. Saeteurn, who crashed into a chain link fence along the road, was fine. He fled the scene but was later located at his residence.

Saeteurn was booked into the Sacramento County Jail for felony DUI, felony hit and run, and vehicular manslaughter charges. If you have additional information about the crash, the South Sacramento CHP urges you to call (916) 999-9000.

Unfortunately, negligent drivers who have had too much to drink still get behind the wheel, and cause serious Sacramento car accidents as a result. These crashes have far-reaching implications for those involved, including serious injuries and loss of life. The innocent parties are then left to pick up the pieces.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
