Fatal Watt, El Camino Ave Crash in Arden-Arcade; Driver Suspected to Have Run Red Light

Arden-Arcade, CA – According to KCRA with additional reporting from CBS13, just after 8:30 AM on Wednesday, May 1, 2024, near the intersection of Watt and El Camino avenues, a driver who might have run a red light led to a fatal crash between a sedan and SUV.

California Highway Patrol (CHP) reports indicate that one of the vehicles failed to stop at the red light, leading to a collision with another vehicle in the intersection. The impact was severe, propelling one of the vehicles into a nearby pole.

CHP officials confirmed that one driver, identified as a man in his 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene. Another individual involved in the crash received medical treatment from responding medics and was subsequently released at the scene.

It remains unclear which vehicle was ultimately at fault, and authorities will be conducting comprehensive investigations to determine the sequence of events leading to this fatal collision.

Wrongful Death Claims

Establishing fault in a collision can depend on multiple factors. Helping to determine legal liability is one of the ways that a personal injury attorney can help grieving families recovering from the loss of a loved one in a traffic accident.

If it is determined that another driver holds responsibility for their loved one’s death, they may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver. A wrongful death claim can provide compensation to help cover hospital fees, burial costs, and the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.
