Madera County, California – The CHP is investigating a deadly Madera County crash that left Katrina Wood, 30, of Chowchilla dead on Saturday evening on State Route 99, just south of Avenue 17 on September 19.

According to the report, Wood was driving a 2004 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV northbound on SR 99 at an unknown speed at around 6 p.m. when she lost control and made unsafe lane changes. 

She went across both lanes and struck the concrete center divide, before bouncing back across the highway and struck a 2017 Toyota.

The Toyota was being driven by a Chowchilla couple. 

The impact caused the Mitsubishi to overturn on the right side and ejected Wood, who was not wearing her seatbelt.

Wood was pronounced deceased at the site of the accident. 

The Toyota crashed into a sign post but the occupants were not injured. 

Authorities are working to determine the cause of the wreck.

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.”
