Major Injuries Reported in Early Morning Accident
FRESNO (July 31, 2018)- According to the California Highway Patrol, major injuries were confirmed following a crash involving at least two vehicles at the intersection of Bryan and Clinton avenues.
Authorities arrived on scene after the collision which occurred at precisely 7:47 a.m.
Upon their arrival, several Good Samaritans had stopped and pulled over to provide assistance in helping remove multiple parties from the involved vehicles who were trapped inside.
Eventually, the fire department and paramedics arrived to help the injured parties including one motorist who had suffered a broken ankle, according to CHP officials.
Several Victims Taken to Community Regional Med Center
Multiple victims ended up being transported via ambulance to Community Regional Medical Center with “major injuries.”
At this time, we are unsure in regards to what transpired as the investigation is ongoing. Authorities remained present at the scene gathering information and interviewing potential witnesses as of 9:40 a.m.

A forensic examination of both vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, those injured and not found responsible for the crash may be granted the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party pending the investigation results. Victims would then have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost future income.
