(March 20th, 2018)- According to the Fresno Bee, a deadly 4-car crash was reported Monday evening at the intersection of Highway 168 and Shields Avenue.
California Highway Patrol officials responded to the crash site which occurred at precisely 11:40 p.m.
According to the Fresno Bee, a Hyundai, an Acura, a 2015 Toyota, and a 2016 Dodge were the involved vehicles.
Preliminary investigations have indicated that the driver of the 2015 Hyundai ID’d as Ramon Medina-Mata, 26, of Fresno, had been headed east along Highway 168. For unknown reasons, the 26-year-old man suddenly lost control before veering over onto a dirt embankment and striking the center median wall.

As Medina-Mata’s vehicle rested in and blocked traffic lanes, a woman driving a 1998 Acura collided in the Hyundai. Two additional vehicles were then involved including Marina Jurica Preston, 40, of Fresno, who had been driving the Toyota and Daniel Woodward, 36, of Clovis, who was driving the Dodge.
According to the Fresno Bee, the woman in the Acura who has not been identified tragically sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced at the scene.
Meanwhile, it remains unclear whether Preston, Woodward, the Medina-Mata suffered injuries as those details were not provided in the report.
California Highway Patrol is currently investigating the collision and does not believe drugs or alcohol to have been a contributing factor.
No further details have been released as this story will be updated pending the disclosure of the victim’s name.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the surviving family members of the woman whose life was sadly taken in this accident will likely possess the right to a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver of the Hyundai. Both Daniel Woodward and Marina Preston would also be subject to claims for a personal injury for any injuries were suffered by either motorist. As a result of these accidents, victims involved are able to seek compensation for damages which include funeral costs, medical expenses and hospital bills, lost future income due to injury, and pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.
