Fatal Head-On Collision on Highway 41 in Fresno Kills 2

Fresno, California – The California Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal head-on collision on Highway 41 in Fresno that left two people dead.

The crash involved a Nissan pickup truck, a Chevy Tahoe and a Hyundai Veloster and happened at around 6:15 a.m. on September 16, near Elkhorn Avenue.

The truck driver was northbound and started passing cars when they side-swiped the Tahoe, causing it to spin off the roadway. The truck then collided head-on with the Veloster that was behind the Tahoe in the southbound lane.

The driver of the Veloster and the driver of the truck, who was pinned inside, died in the crash. The truck caught fire after the impact.

The Tahoe had four occupants at the time of the crash. It was not clear if they were injured, but they looked OK, authorities said.

CHP blocked Highway 41 in both directions following the accident for an unknown duration.

No additional details about the accident were readily available.

The cause of the collision remains under investigation.

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.”

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.”
