A man tragically lost his life in a fatal semi-truck accident that occurred at a Hanford intersection. According to information from Your Central Valley, the crash happened around 7:48 p.m. at the intersection of 12 3/4 Avenue and Douglas Avenue in Kings County on the night of April 24, 2024.

The accident, according to California Highway Patrol officers who arrived on scene, happened during night hours and involved two vehicles – identified as a semi-truck and a Silverado pickup truck. At the time, both vehicles were headed through the intersection when they collided with each other due to reasons that are still being investigated.

When paramedics arrived on scene, the driver of the Silverado was tragically pronounced deceased. He was identified only as a man in his 60s. The driver of the truck remained on scene and was not hurt.

No further details have been released but the investigation into the collision continues.

Maison Law of Hanford posted details pertaining to this crash and information for families on how to move forward after a fatal truck accident.

Hanford Truck Accident Dangers

Hanford, as with the rest of Kings County, sees a large number of semi-trucks on its roads every week. These accidents take place everywhere, from intersections to highways and lead to catastrophic results in many cases.

California’s Transportation Injury Mapping System (TIMS) estimated that 4 semi-truck accidents took place in Hanford in 2023. However, Kings County as a whole saw many accidents involving these large trucks in 2023. A total of 55 truck accidents occurred in Kings County that particular year, with 5 people losing their lives and 71 sustaining injuries.

Even though semi-truck drivers are supposed to go through proper training and hiring on the job, this does not always happen. Truck drivers and companies alike sometimes engage in negligent acts that lead to life-altering accidents. This can leave families in a desperate position.
