Master Deepak, a popular radio and TV personality was killed in a car crash on Sept. 5 near Fresno, Calif.

Deepak was killed in a car crash in Central California on Sept. 5. A portion of Highway 33, south of Mendota was closed for hours as officials surveyed the scene. As of right now the family of Master Deepak have not stated if they will press legal charges, but it is likely that they have reached out to a personal Injury Attorney to handle the matter once they have finished grieving.

The California Highway Patrol says a 2009 Mercedes SUV was headed eastbound, when according to multiple witnesses, it ran a stop sign, traveling into the path of a tractor trailer going north on Highway 33. Dangerous driving like this is what unfortunately accounts for many accidents and injuries out on the roads. Those who have been hurt in such an incident might want to reach out to a law firm like Noll Law for help with legal matters in the aftermath of the incident. CHP Sgt. Matt Zulim said that two vehicles “traveled off the road and overturned.” He added that all five passengers in the 2009 Mercedes were killed. Crashes such as this one can be very sensitive matters, and so it is important for legal teams to fully understand the surrounding circumstances.

“When the trailer of the big rig landed on top of the Mercedes, the Mercedes caught fire and was fully engulfed,” Zulim said.

Alcohol and drugs are not believed to have played a role in the crash.

Desi 1170 AM, the largest South Asian radio station in the U.S. issued a statement on Facebook. “We are saddened to announce that Master Deepak Ji, our dear friend and an integral part of our radio family and community, has passed away …Our hearts — heavy and pained, are grieving for Master Deepak Ji’s family and the family members and friends of the four gentlemen who lost their lives in the car crash.”

Desi 1170 AM will be dedicating programs as a tribute to Mahakaal Living with Master Deepak Ji. In addition, during Mahakaal Living with Master Deepak Ji’s traditional hours on Monday and Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m., the station will be taking live calls for those who want to share stories of “how our well-loved guru once touched their lives.” Deepak’s radio show was one of the longest-running and popular shows on radio, having been on the air for seven years.

Deepak was a renowned and dynamic Vedic Astrologer, an expert in Numerology Gemology, Vastu Shastra and Lal Kitab. He hosted a show twice a week on Desi 1170 AM. As the founder of Mahakaal Living, he was fascinated with stars, planets, and how people are able to predict the past, present and future. According to his website, he started practicing Vedic Astrology at 15-years-old when he began building awareness with various Jyotish Gurus and Great Sadhus, meeting them at varying places around India and Nepal. He studied in New Delhi at All India Federation of Astrologers and received several achievement awards.
