One Injured in Car Crash with North College Ave Apartment Building in Fresno

Fresno, CA — A collision involving a car and a North College Ave apartment building early Sunday morning, June 9, 2024, resulted in one person being hospitalized, as reported by KSEE.

According to investigators, the vehicle was traveling eastbound on Bullard Avenue at approximately 2:40 AM when it suddenly veered across the westbound lanes. It collided with a wall and a wooden fence before finally striking the outside of the apartment building. Although the car did not penetrate the building’s interior, it did cause significant damage by breaking a water pipe, leading to water damage inside the apartments.

Upon arrival, emergency responders discovered an occupant of the vehicle who did not appear to be the driver. This individual was promptly transported to a local hospital.

Fresno Police are currently working to identify the other occupants of the vehicle who fled the scene following the collision. No arrests have been made so far, and the investigation remains active as authorities seek to understand the full circumstances surrounding the crash.

Passenger Liability

The liability insurance that drivers carry is not just meant to cover accidental harm caused to those outside of the vehicle. A driver is responsible for the safety of those in their vehicle as well. While making a wrongful death or personal injury claim against someone who knew the victim personally may prove emotionally challenging, the financial burdens following a vehicular accident can be hefty.

A good personal injury attorney can help grieving families seek proper compensation for their loss by navigating these tricky issues, as well as negotiating on the victim’s behalf with insurance companies, who routinely work to minimize the payout of any claim they cannot deny.
