June 4, 2018– According to the Fresno Bee, a deadly collision left a teenager fatally injured identified as Abel Lopez, 17, of Kerman.
The collision occurred at the intersection of Jensen and Trinity avenues at an unspecified time.
Authorities disclosed that Lopez was either the driver or a passenger involved in a crash with a tractor.
While the cause of the crash remains under investigation, no information was also provided in regards to whether or not anybody else sustained injuries.
This story will be updated pending the disclosure of new details.
Johnson Attorneys Group’s condolences remain with the family members and all friends of Abel Lopez and his family. We hope they are brought peace and comfort at this time.
Based on this news report, there are still many unanswered questions here. Was the victim the driver or a passenger? Was either alcohol or drugs involved possibly serving as a contributing factor? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Where was the tractor in adjacent to the road itself? Were there any other motorists injured in the collision? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the family members of the victim, Abel Lopez, may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against an at-fault party pending how the investigation turns out. Immediate family of the victim would potentially be entitled to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost future income and loss of love and companionship.
