Man Injured; 4 Others Killed in Sanger Crash Sunday
SANGER (July 12, 2017)- According to KMPH News, a horrifying car accident was reported Sunday, July 9, on Academy Avenue just south of Shields.
California Highway Patrol officials were notified of the collision involving a 2002 Ford and a second vehicle.
Violet Johnson and Amber Johnson Killed in Car Accident
The report indicated that a total of four people were inside the Ford including the driver- Violet Johnson, 28, of Fresno, Amber Johnson, 24, Bradley Earp, 5, and Jacob Earp, 1., and a third unidentified child. For unknown reasons, Violet Johnson has been driving on the wrong side of the road on Academy Avenue before slamming into another vehicle head-on.
The driver of the other vehicle, Francisco Cordero, suffered major injuries and was taken to Community Regional Medical Center located in Fresno. His condition has not been updated.
Meanwhile, four of the five passengers tragically died in the Ford as the driver and passenger were pronounced dead at the scene while the Bradley Earp and Jacob Earp passed away at the hospital.
Authorities are currently investigating the collision and have not been able to say why the Ford driver was traveling the wrong way ultimately causing the collision.
The driver of the Ford will be held responsible for causing the crash, however, there are still many unanswered questions at this time. Was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was the driver negligent in any other way?
Mr. Francisco Cordero will have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver, Violet Johnson, allowing him to recover compensation for his medical expenses as well as pain and suffering.
