Fatal St. Patrick’s Day Crash at Copper, Willow Ave in Fresno County

Fresno, CA – According to ABC30, authorities believe alcohol to be a factor in a fatal solo-vehicle crash that followed St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the early hours of Monday, March 18, 2024.

The crash occurred near Clovis North High School, on Copper Avenue near Willow, around 1:30 AM. A westbound Tesla carrying three men apparently lost control and struck the center median guardrail and overturned, then struck another guardrail.

Both the driver and front passenger were thrown from the Tesla and died at the scene. The third passenger survived and received transportation to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Alcohol and excessive speed are both believed to have been factors in the crash.

Passenger Liability

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 or personal injury claim against someone who knew the victim personally may prove emotionally challenging, the financial burdens following a vehicular accident 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.
