Concord, CA – A tragic incident unfolded on Interstate 680 in Concord on the morning of Sunday, April 7, 2024, resulting in the loss of a 9-year-old girl’s life and leaving four women injured, as reported by NBC Bay Area.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) received notification of the crash near the I-680/Highway 242 split at 5:14 AM. According to their statement, an SUV carrying six individuals was traveling northbound when it veered off the road between the two freeways, overturning multiple times across the dirt median.

First responders arrived to find the SUV overturned on its roof, with the young girl succumbing to her injuries at the scene. The four injured women were swiftly transported to the hospital, their conditions described as “major.”

CHP is actively seeking the driver, described as a 30-year-old man, who fled the scene on foot following the crash. Investigations into the circumstances surrounding the incident are ongoing as authorities work to piece together the events leading up to the tragic crash on Interstate 680.

Wrongful Death Claims

Even in cases where criminal charges are not brought to bear, families who have lost a loved one in a fatal collision may be able to file a wrongful death claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver.

The compensation provided by a wrongful death claim can relieve the financial burdens created by medical expenses, burial costs, and the loss of income to support any dependents of the deceased.

Insurance companies will work to reduce any claim they cannot deny, which is where the help of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can prove invaluable by negotiating on behalf of victims and their families to ensure they receive proper compensation.
