FRESNO COUNTY (September 2, 2018) – Four were seriously injured after a fatal traffic collision along Shaw Avenue late Saturday night, according to The Fresno Bee.

The accident took place on September 1 at around 10 p.m., just west of Monroe Avenue.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said a 71-year-old Clovis man was driving a 2005 Chevrolet west on Shaw Avenue at around 55 mph when for an unknown reason he veered into the opposite lane.

The Chevrolet then struck an eastbound 2015 GMC driven by 41-year-old Carina Carillo Monroy head-on. The Chevrolet overturned as a result of the crash.

Both the 71-year-old motorist and Monroy were pinned inside their cars upon impact. Both were extricated from the wreckage, and the elderly driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Monroy, of Woodland, suffered multiple fractures in the wreck. He and his passengers, 40-year-old Jose Hernandez and two people in their 70s, were all rushed to Community Regional Medical Center to be treated for major injuries.

The names of the wounded patients and the deceased man have not been yet released. The cause of the incident remains under investigation.

In this case, there are several questions that need to be resolved in order to determine the cause of the deadly crash. Was the driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs a factor? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Why did the elderly driver of the Chevrolet drift into the opposite lane? Was he reckless or negligent at some point or did he suffer a medical emergency prior to impact?

Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this accident, the injured and not held responsible for causing the collision will possess the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. The claim will include the compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, property damage and pain and suffering.
