Multi-Vehicle Crash Near Fresno

I’m Ed Smith, a Fresno car accident lawyer. A car accident involving four vehicles occurred west of Fresno on the afternoon of Tuesday, August 29, 2017. Sadly, the crash caused four victims to suffer traumatic injuries.

What Happened?

Firefighters from the Fresno Fire Department, three ambulances and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) responded to the scene of an automobile accident along Shaw Avenue and Dickenson Avenue at approximately 2:44 pm. When emergency personnel arrived, they located four damaged vehicles and four injured victims. The impact of the collision, unfortunately, caused two of the four victims to be pinned inside their vehicle.

Was Anybody Injured?

Officials reported that medical personnel transported two people via ground ambulance to the Saint Agnes Medical Center and the other two to the Community Regional Medical Center. The status and condition of the victims’ injuries has not yet been released.

What Caused the Accident?

A cause of the accident has not yet been ascertained by CHP. A Traffic Collision Report usually takes seven to ten days to be processed.

What to Do After a Car Accident in Fresno

The first step to take after being involved in a car accident in Fresno is to call authorities to make a report. Contacting the police and having them come out to the scene is important in the creation of an investigative report. A report by a refutable agency is useful when you file a claim with your insurance company.

It is important to obtain medical treatment for injuries that you may have sustained. Have medical personnel dispatched to the accident scene to help you or go to the nearest emergency room following your accident.

If possible, keep a checklist of all information regarding a car accident. Having the license plate information of the other involved vehicle(s) is not enough. Be sure to get the driver’s license information of the other motorists involved in the accident. You will want to share this information with your insurance company. Take pictures of your vehicle at different angles as soon as possible. Take photographs of the other involved vehicle(s) if it is safe to do so. Having this information will prove useful for filing a personal injury claim. Consult with an experienced Fresno car accident lawyer for more details.
