A Crash at the Intersection of Iona, 14th Avenue Kills 1, Hospitalizes Another

Kings County, CA – On the afternoon of Sunday, February 25, 2024, a two-vehicle crash south of Armona resulted in the death of one and injury of another, according to KFSN.

Around 2 PM, a 17-year-old girl driving east on Iona Avenue in a Hyundai Elantra ran a stop sign at the 14th Avenue intersection, entering the path of a northbound Chevy Suburban.

The Chevy crashed into the side of the Hyundai at the intersection. One of the Hyundai’s passengers was killed and another received transportation to the hospital for her injuries.

Authorities do not believe intoxication to have played a part in the crash.

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.

A good personal injury attorney can help grieving families seek proper compensation for the loss by navigating these tricky issues, as well as negotiating on the victim’s behalf with insurance companies, who routinely work to minimize the payout of any claim they cannot deny.
