Fresno County, CA – According to KFSN, on the afternoon of Monday, March 25, 2024, two people were killed outside of Reedley when they failed to stop at a stop sign.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reports that, at the intersection of Parlier Avenue and Buttonwillow Avenue, a Ford Focus driven by a woman with a male passenger entered the path of a Ford F-150 pickup truck when it disobeyed a stop sign.

The two vehicles collided, and the Ford Focus passenger was pronounced dead at the scene while the driver succumbed to her injuries on the way to the hospital. The truck driver sustained no injuries in the crash.

Passenger Liability

The liability insurance that drivers carry is not just meant to cover accidental harm caused to those outside of the vehicle. A driver is responsible for the safety of those in their vehicle as well. While making a wrongful death or personal injury claim against someone who knew the victim personally may prove emotionally challenging, the financial burdens following a vehicular accident can be hefty.

A good personal injury attorney can help grieving families seek proper compensation for their loss by navigating these tricky issues, as well as negotiating on the victim’s behalf with insurance companies, who routinely work to minimize the payout of any claim they cannot deny.
