Parlier, CA – The third person involved in a multi-vehicle collision that occurred on January 31, 2024, on Manning Avenue between Smith and Riverbend Avenues, has been identified by the Fresno County Coroner’s Office as 29-year-old Cesar Corona Carrillo of Parlier, according to KSEE.
Around 5 AM, Carillo was driving a Honda Accord on Manning, unknowingly approaching a collision between a speeding Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by 25-year-old Samuel Sanchez and a Honda Civic driven by 24-year-old Guillermo Contreras.
The collision resulted in the Jeep entering the path of Carillo’s Honda Accord, resulting in a head-on impact between the vehicles. Carillo was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Jeep flipped upside-down in the crash and caught on fire. Contreras, who was uninjured by the accident, pulled Sanchez from the burning vehicle. Sanchez received transportation to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Wrongful Death Claims
While no amount of money can bring back those who lose their lives in a vehicular fatality, the emotional burden of their loss is often accompanied by a financial burden that falls on their surviving family members.
A wrongful death claim filed with the insurance provider of an at-fault driver can provide compensation to help cover medical expenses, burial costs, and even the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.
However, because insurance companies carry the incentive to reduce the payout for any claim they cannot deny, the services of a skilled personal injury attorney can prove crucial in securing justice for the deceased.
