Richmond, CA — The Mercury News reports that, on Thursday, February 1, 2024, on the Richmond Parkway near Parr Boulevard, a fiery crash claimed one life.

Around 10:25 PM, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) arrived at the accident site to find an SUV in the embankment, upside-down and on fire. One occupant, who did not survive the crash, was found inside. Details have not been released as to the identity of the deceased.

Initial investigations suggest that the SUV had been traveling eastbound on the Richmond Parkway, with no information yet available as to what may have caused the crash. The investigation is still ongoing.

Wrongful Death Claims

Establishing fault in a collision can depend on multiple factors. Helping to determine legal liability is one of the ways that a personal injury attorney can help grieving families recovering from the loss of a loved one in a traffic accident.

If it is determined that another driver holds responsibility for their loved one’s death, they may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver. A wrongful death claim can provide compensation to help cover hospital fees, burial costs, and the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.
