Suspected DUI Crash at Englehart, Manning Ave Kills 2 near Reedley in Fresno County

Reedley, CA — Investigators suspect alcohol may have played a role in a collision that left two men dead on Saturday evening, June 29, 2024, just outside of Reedley, according to KSEE.

The incident occurred around 7 PM at the intersection of Englehart and Manning Avenues. California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers responded to the scene following reports of a two-vehicle collision.

Preliminary investigations revealed that a Chevrolet Impala was traveling southbound on Englehart Avenue, approaching the stop sign at Manning Avenue. At the same time, a Ford F-150, carrying three occupants from Orange Cove, was heading westbound on Manning Avenue, a through road.

For reasons yet to be determined, the Chevrolet Impala failed to stop at the stop sign and entered the path of the Ford F-150. The front end of the Ford collided with the left front of the Chevrolet, resulting in a severe impact.

The collision proved fatal for the driver and the front-seat passenger of the Chevrolet Impala, both men believed to be in their 30s. They were pronounced dead at the scene. The three occupants of the Ford F-150 sustained minor injuries and are expected to recover.

CHP officers are investigating whether alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash, as initial indications suggest this possibility. The investigation is ongoing as authorities work to confirm these suspicions and gather more details about the circumstances leading to the collision.

The identities of the victims have not yet been released.

Wrongful Death Claims

No amount of money can bring back loved ones lost in a vehicular fatality. However, the emotional toll of such a loss is often compounded by the financial burden that falls on surviving family members.

Filing a Wrongful Death claim with the insurance provider of those who bear even partial liability can provide compensation to help cover medical expenses, burial costs, and the loss of support for the deceased’s dependents.

Insurance companies have a vested interest in minimizing the payouts for claims. Therefore, the expertise of a skilled personal injury attorney is crucial in securing fair compensation and justice for the deceased.
