UPDATE: Yia Vang, 66, Mai Yang Vang, 81, Named in Fatal SUV Crash at Clovis, Butler Ave in Sunnyside, Fresno

Fresno, CA – According to the Fresno Bee, the Fresno County Coroner’s Office has identified the two women killed in an SUV crash on Tuesday, March 19, 2024, as 66-year-old Yia Vang and 81-year-old Mai Yang Vang.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reports that the accident occurred in Fresno’s Sunnyside area on Clovis Avenue, near Butler, when the SUV, driven by Yia, attempted to pass another car and struck a metal post. The SUV then crashed into a cinder block wall.

Mai Yang, the passenger, died at the scene. Yia received transportation to the Community Regional Medical Center and succumbed to her wounds there. The CHP does not suspect driver intoxication to have played a part 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 their 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.

Liability in Single-Vehicle Collisions

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a single-vehicle collision might fall upon other drivers in the vicinity of the accident or even unsafe roadway structures. Working through the particulars of liability to help victims and their families find proper compensation is one of the many services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Once liability has been established, a personal injury attorney can also negotiate on behalf of the victim with insurance companies, who will always seek to minimize the payout for any claim they cannot deny.
