UPDATE: Fresno Crash at Dickenson, Barstow Ave Kills Elida Fernandez, 65

Fresno, CA – On the morning of Tuesday, March 5, 2024, a two-vehicle collision at a Fresno intersection resulted in the death of 65-year-old Elida Fernandez, mistakenly identified as having been 76 years old, according to FOX26.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reports that the accident occurred after 11 AM when Fernandez, driving a Hyundai Sonata southbound on Dickenson Avenue, failed to obey a stop sign at the intersection with Barstow Avenue.

As Fernandez entered the intersection, her Hyundai was struck by a GMC Sierra pickup truck driven by a 45-year-old man who had been approaching from Barstow, which did not have a stop sign posted.

Wrongful Death Claims

Even in cases where criminal charges are not brought to bear, families who have lost a loved one in a fatal collision may be able to file a wrongful death claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver.

The compensation provided by a wrongful death claim can relieve the financial burdens created by medical expenses, burial costs, and the loss of income to support any dependents of the deceased.

Insurance companies will work to reduce any claim they cannot deny, which is where the help of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can prove invaluable by negotiating on behalf of victims and their families to ensure they receive proper compensation.
