Crash at Barstow, Dickenson Ave Kills 76-Year-Old Woman

Fresno, CA – According to KSEE, on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, a 76-year-old woman died after failing to obey a stop sign.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) that around 11 AM, the woman was driving on Dickenson Avenue, approaching the intersection with Barstow Avenue. When she ignored the stop sign, she drove right into the path of a 45-year-old man driving into the intersection from Barstow Avenue.

One of the cars overturned in the crash and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The other driver received transportation to a nearby hospital for his injuries.

Wrongful Death Claims

While no amount of money can bring back those who lose their lives in a vehicular fatality, the emotional burden of their loss is often accompanied by a financial burden that falls on their surviving family members.

A wrongful death claim filed with the insurance provider of an at-fault driver can provide compensation to help cover medical expenses, burial costs, and even the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.

However, because insurance companies carry the incentive to reduce the payout for any claim they cannot deny, the services of a skilled personal injury attorney can prove crucial in securing justice for the deceased.
