UPDATE: Victor Soto Orocio, 30, Killed in Head-On Crash on Hwy 180, George Smith Rd in Yokuts Valley

Fresno County, CA – On Sunday, February 18, 2024, a head-on collision on Highway 180 in Yokuts Valley resulted in two hospitalized and the death of a man now identified as 30-year-old Victor Soto Orocio of Sanger, according to the Fresno Bee.

Around 5:30 AM, a Toyota Tundra traveling eastbound on 180 was struck by Orocio traveling westbound in a Chevrolet Equinox when he crossed the center line and moved into oncoming traffic.

While the occupants of the Toyota received transport to Community Regional Medical Center for their injuries, Orocio was pronounced dead at the scene. The CHP does not believe driver 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.
