Around 5:30 PM, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) received word of the accident and sent emergency responders to the crash site near State Routes 65 and 155.

There they found that a red and white big rig and a white car had both been left on the east side of the road following the collision, with the big rig being about 50 feet down the embankment.

One of those involved was declared dead at the scene. Animal control was also summoned to handle a Labrador who may have been a passenger in one of the vehicles.

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.
