Auto Accident Fatally Injures Los Banos Woman

Auto Accident Fatally Injures Los Banos Woman

I’m Ed Smith, a Merced wrongful death attorney. A local woman lost her life in a single vehicle accident north of Los Banos on July 8, 2018. At approximately 8:30 in the morning, a woman was driving her 2008 Honda sedan southbound along Highway 165 in the vicinity of Salt Slough when her vehicle veered towards the northbound lane of the roadway. The woman reportedly attempted to correct the car. However, her efforts were unsuccessful as the Honda drifted off the west side of the highway. The Honda crashed through a road sign, overturned and came to a rest on its wheels along the side of the roadway. Unfortunately, the Honda driver was pronounced deceased at the scene due to the severity of her sustained injuries. The Merced County Coroner’s Office has identified the victim as 27-year-old Renee Echard-Lopez McCoy of Los Banos.

My thoughts and prayers go out to those grieving the loss of their loved one during this difficult time.

Two Killed in Merced County Head-On Collision

I’m Ed Smith, a Merced wrongful death attorney. A head-on collision near Merced claimed the lives of two parties and left several others with injuries on June 24, 2018. At approximately 5:20 in the evening, a man driving a 1992 Mazda pickup truck was traveling northbound along Highway 59 in the vicinity of Canton Road. The Mazda driver was attempting to overtake a big rig but reportedly failed to pass in time and collided head-on with a southbound 2012 Toyota Sienna van. Unfortunately, the accident caused the Mazda driver and a passenger of the Toyota to suffer fatal injuries at the scene. Officials have identified the victims as 31-year-old Jose Alvarado Panigua of El Nido and 84-year-old Victoria Hernandez of Rancho Cucamonga.

I would like to extend my sincere thoughts and sympathies to those grieving the loss of their loved ones during this heart-wrenching time.
