An unidentified woman was killed while one man sustained significant injuries after a multi-vehicle crash south of Easton in Fresno County on Saturday night, November 7.
The crash took place on Highway 41, near Adams avenue at approximately 8:00 p.m. Three vehicles were involved in the accident.
A 17-year-old girl was reportedly driving a Honda Accord southbound on Highway 41 when it turned eastbound onto Adams Avenue. The Honda Accord crashed into a Toyota Camry that was going northbound. The Honda then collided with a Chevrolet Suburban occupied by three people, while the Camry crashed into a light pole.
One of the Camry occupants, a 54-year-old woman, was killed as a result of the collision. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The male driver of the Camry was seriously injured while the occupants of the Chevrolet Suburban sustained minor injuries. All of them were taken to an area hospital for treatment.
The 17-year-old driver complained of pain and was taken to a nearby hospital as well. No arrests have been made at the moment.
Fatal Multi-Vehicle Collision Investigation is Underway
Local authorities are currently investigating the case.
When three or more cars collide on the roadway, it is considered a multi-vehicle collision. This type of car accident is commonly caused by a “chain reaction,” when one car bumps into another, which causes the other to hit the next vehicle.
Multi-vehicle collisions are commonly caused by drunk driving, speeding, and distracted driving. It can be quite challenging to pinpoint liability during a multi-vehicle collision investigation, which is why it is essential to hire an experienced Fresno County car accident attorney to conduct an independent investigation.
Attorneys can re-interview important witnesses, review relevant surveillance footage from the scene, and obtain the responsible party’s phone and texting records.
