Head-On Crash on Hwy 180, West of George Smith Rd, Kills Sanger Man, Aged 30

Fresno County, CA – On the morning of Sunday, February 19, 2024, a 30-year-old man from Sanger died in a head-on collision with a pickup truck, according to KSEE.

The crash occurred around 5:30 AM on Highway 180, west of George Smith Road. The deceased had been traveling eastbound in a Chevrolet Equinox when his vehicle entered the westbound lane and collided with a 2017 Toyota Tundra.

While the Sanger man died from his injuries, the driver and passenger of the Toyota received transport to a nearby hospital for treatment. It remains unclear why the vehicle of the deceased entered the path of oncoming traffic. Authorities do not believe intoxication to have been a factor.

Wrongful Death Claims

Establishing fault in a collision can depend on multiple factors. Helping to determine legal liability is one of the ways that a personal injury attorney can help grieving families recovering from the loss of a loved one in a traffic accident.

If it is determined that another driver holds responsibility for their loved one’s death, they may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver. A wrongful death claim can provide compensation to help cover hospital fees, burial costs, and the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.

Personal Injury Claims

After a vehicular accident, in addition to emotional distress, victims and their families can be overwhelmed with the sudden financial burdens of medical bills, loss of income due to recovery time, and, in unfortunate circumstances, burial fees.

The responsibility for these costs should fall upon the driver responsible for such injuries and their insurance provider. However, insurance companies will try to minimize the compensation for any claim they cannot deny, which is why having the help of a skilled personal injury attorney can prove crucial in ensuring justice for victims of vehicular accidents.
