Pregnant Woman Hit and Killed by Vehicle on Swift Avenue in Fresno

Fresno, California – 32-year-old Kenneth Carter was arrested following a Sunday night Fresno pedestrian crash on Swift Avenue that left a pregnant woman dead.

The woman was walking in a crosswalk mark crossing Swift Avenue near Marks Avenue with family and friends when a red SUV driven by Carter hit her.

Fresno police said Carter was driving northbound at a high rate of speed when he struck the woman who was on the outside lane almost out of the roadway.

The woman, who was seven months pregnant, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The name of the deceased was not immediately disclosed.

Carter reportedly drove off after the scene but later called the authorities and turned himself in. He was booked into the Fresno County Jail for vehicular manslaughter.

An investigation into the crash is underway.

Arin Khodaverdian, CEO and Managing Attorney of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights. Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
