Fresno, California – Idalia Perez, 32, of Sonoma, three of her children, and her mother-in-law were all killed in a traffic accident that occurred in Fresno on I-5 near Panoche Road early Wednesday morning, according to the authorities.

The family of five was in a pickup truck heading north on Interstate 5 when it swerved into the southbound lanes, for unknown reasons, and collided head-on with an oncoming big rig near Firebaugh town.

The big rig and the pickup truck burst into flames after the crash. 

The five occupants of the pickup died at the scene.

Other victims in the accident were identified as Martha Colin, 52, Ixzel, 10; Luis, 8; and Jorge “Jorgie,” 1, all of Sonoma.

The other motorist had minor injuries.

The southbound lane of I-5 was closed as authorities examined and cleared the scene.

The CHP is handling the 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.”

“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.”
