Fatal Crash between Semi-Truck, Silverado at 12 ¾ Ave, Douglas Ave near Laton

Kings County, CA – A devastating collision between a semi-truck and a Silverado at 7:48 PM on Wednesday, April 25, 2024, at the intersection of 12 ¾ Avenue and Douglas Avenue near Laton has resulted in the loss of a man’s life, according to KSEE.

Details provided by CHP reveal that the semi-truck was heading southbound on 12 ¾ Avenue while the Silverado was traveling westbound on Douglas Avenue. According to preliminary investigations, authorities believe that the Silverado may have failed to adhere to the posted stop sign, leading to the tragic collision with the semi-truck.

The driver of the Silverado, identified as a man in his 60s, was pronounced dead at the scene. The truck driver remained at the site following the collision, and investigations by CHP have indicated that drugs or alcohol are not believed to have played a role in the accident.

The investigation remains ongoing as CHP works to determine the precise circumstances surrounding the collision.

Liability and Wrongful Death

Readers should bear in mind that any statements made by news outlets that appear to suggest liability in an accident are based solely on the opinions of authorities based on initial evidence. Further investigations may reveal new evidence that changes the picture of events.

A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer can help to guide the surviving family members of the victim of a vehicular fatality to examine the evidence and determine if some portion of liability falls upon outside parties. If so, there may be grounds to file a Wrongful Death Claim.

While no amount of money can bring back the ones we’ve lost, their unexpected passing can leave grieving families with a financial burden in the form of medical bills, funeral expenses, and the loss of income to support dependents of the deceased. The compensation provided by a Wrongful Death Claim can help to address these costs as well as provide some closure for those in mourning.
