Fresno County, CA – According to KFSN, on the morning of Sunday, February 18, 2024, a head-on crash near Yokuts Valley resulted in one death.

The California Highway Patrol reports that the collision occurred on Highway 180 and George Smith Road around 5:30 AM.

No further details have yet been made available, but authorities do not believe intoxication to have played a factor in the crash. This is an ongoing investigation.

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.
