Rollover Accident Fatally Injures Fresno Family
I’m Ed Smith, a Fresno car accident lawyer. A car accident occurred along Highway 99 near Fresno during the early morning hours of Sunday, September 24, 2017. The collision, sadly, caused a family of three to suffer fatal injuries.
We extend our sincerest thoughts and condolences to the loved ones of the family that lost their lives in this tragic car accident.
A 1998 Ford Explorer was traveling in the middle lane southbound along Highway 99 in the vicinity of Herndon Avenue just before 3:00 am. For unknown reasons, the driver allegedly lost control of their vehicle, veered to the left and collided with the concrete center divider. The motorist attempted to veer the Ford to the right and overturned in the direct path of an oncoming vehicle. The vehicle approaching was unable to stop in time, resulting in a severe collision.
Was Anybody Injured?
The motorist of the other vehicle complained of neck and back pain following the accident. That individual was taken to the Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno for treatment. The three individuals inside of the Ford Explorer, unfortunately, succumbed to their injuries at the scene.
The car accident tragically claimed the lives of a family of three, including a husband, wife and son. The Fresno County Coroner’s Office has released the identifies of the parties as 53-year-old Ismael Ramos Jara, 54-year-old Maria De La Cruz, and 22-year-old Jesus Anthony Jara, all residents of Fresno.
What Caused the Accident?
The cause of the accident has not yet been determined. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is in charge of the accident investigation. A Traffic Collision Report by CHP usually takes up to two weeks to be processed. Preliminary details include the thought that speed may have played a role in the accident. It is crucial to note that not all traffic reports are completely accurate pertaining to fault. Contacting a seasoned Fresno car accident lawyer is crucial when a party has lost their life in a car accident. An experienced attorney can conduct a solo investigation of the crash scene and examine the sequence of events leading up to the collision to properly determine liability.
The vehicles that are most susceptible to rollover accidents are older SUVs. These vehicles have a narrow wheelbase and a high center of gravity. Rollover accidents are among the most fatal type of collision due to the risk of vehicle ejections and roof crush injuries. Either of these scenarios can lead to catastrophic injuries resulting from neck or spine injuries, decapitation, amputation of limbs, bone fractures, traumatic brain injuries or even wrongful death. The devastating consequences resulting from these crashes can cause debilitating injuries leading to significant financial obstacles compounded by intense emotional distress. For further assistance, contact an experienced Fresno personal injury lawyer.
