Fresno County, CA — On Thursday morning, June 6, 2024, just after 2 AM, a single-vehicle crash on Highway 33 near Sutter Avenue claimed the life of one individual, according to ABC30.

Authorities report that the driver of a pickup truck lost control and crashed into a guardrail with such force that it penetrated through the truck, killing the driver. Emergency responders pronounced them dead at the scene. At this time, the identity of the deceased has not been released, pending notification of next of kin.

The crash has led to significant traffic delays in the area as crews work to clear the scene and investigate the cause of the accident. Investigators will consider potential causes such as driver fatigue, mechanical failure, or other contributing elements. Motorists are advised to exercise caution and seek alternate routes if possible.

Liability in Single-Vehicle Collisions

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a single-vehicle collision might fall upon other drivers in the vicinity of the accident or even unsafe roadway structures. Working through the particulars of liability to help victims and their families find proper compensation is one of the many services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Once liability has been established, a personal injury attorney can also negotiate on behalf of the victim with insurance companies, who will always seek to minimize the payout for any claim they cannot deny.
