Parking Lot Crash with Semi-Truck Ends Woman’s Life near Cadenasso Dr, Beck Ave in Fairfield

Fairfield, CA – According to FOX40, on Wednesday morning, April 24, 2024, a woman lost her life after being struck by a semi-truck that had just begun moving in a private parking lot. The incident occurred around 5 AM near the intersection of Cadenasso Drive and Beck Avenue, situated just southeast of Interstate 80.

Upon arrival at the scene, Fairfield Police spoke with the driver, who said that he had parked his semi-truck overnight and the collision occurred as he was pulling away. The driver immediately halted the vehicle upon realizing what had happened and promptly contacted emergency services.

Despite their life-saving efforts, emergency personnel declared the woman dead at the scene. The identity of the victim will be withheld until her family has been notified.

Pedestrian Fatalities and Wrongful Death Claims

While no amount of money can heal the pain of losing a loved one to a vehicular fatality, their sudden and unexpected passing often brings equally unexpected costs in the form of medical bills, burial fees, and the loss of income to support any dependents of the deceased.

However, a Wrongful Death Claim, made with the help of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney, can provide compensation to address that financial burden. Should the at-fault driver escape justice, compensation may be available from a family member’s uninsured driver coverage. Consulting with a personal injury attorney can help determine what the best options are.

Those involved in a pedestrian crash should know that motorists are required to exercise an additional “duty of care” towards pedestrians due to their heightened vulnerability in car accidents, which more often result in pedestrian fatalities.
