Multi-Vehicle Crash Claims Four Lives on McHenry Ave Near Hogue Rd in Modesto

Modesto, CA – According to ABC30, four individuals lost their lives in a multi-car collision north of Modesto, CA. The accident, which occurred at approximately 4 PM on Tuesday, April 9, 2024, along McHenry Avenue, north of Hogue Road, involved several vehicles.

According to reports from the California Highway Patrol (CHP), a 19-year-old woman from Merced was driving a Mitsubishi northbound on McHenry when her vehicle swerved into oncoming traffic. The Mitsubishi collided head-on with a Toyota and also struck two other cars in the process.

Tragically, both the driver of the Mitsubishi and her 22-year-old passenger succumbed to their injuries at the scene. Additionally, a 60-year-old woman in the Toyota and her one-year-old passenger were rushed to nearby hospitals, where they later passed away due to the severity of their injuries.

Fortunately, no other individuals sustained injuries in the crash. However, the circumstances surrounding the incident, including whether drugs or alcohol played a role, remain under investigation by authorities.

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.
