Around 1:38 AM, officers responded to reports of a pedestrian lying on the right shoulder of northbound Highway 99, just north of Lerdo Highway. The initial call for help set off an urgent response from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and local emergency services.

Wrongful Death Claims

Those who lose their loved one to a vehicular fatality should know that a Wrongful Death Claim, made with the help of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney, can provide compensation to address the financial burden of medical bills, burial fees, and the loss of income to support any dependents of the deceased.

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.
