Solo-Vehicle Crash with Tree at S Union Ave near Lamb Ave Kills 3

Bakersfield, CA – On the morning of Friday, February 23, 2024, three died in a solo-vehicle crash that ended in the vehicle colliding with a tree, according to KBAK.

Around 6:32 AM, officers of the California Highway Patrol were called to the crash site on S. Union Avenue, south of Lamb Avenue. Investigations indicate that the 2004 Mazda 6 was traveling south on Union when it left the road for an unknown reason and collided with a tree.

The impact tore the front end off of the Mazda and killed the three men inside. All of the deceased were men in their 20s.

Wrongful Death Claims

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 claim against someone who knew the victim personally may prove emotionally challenging, the financial burdens left to a grieving family by the loss of a loved one can be hefty.

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a single-vehicle collision might fall upon other drivers in the vicinity of the accident or even unsafe roadway structures. Working through the particulars of liability to help those who have lost a loved one find proper compensation for their loss is one of the many services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Once liability has been established, a personal injury attorney can also negotiate on behalf of the victim with insurance companies, who will always seek to minimize the payout for any claim they cannot deny.
