HANFORD (September 14, 2017) – On September 12, Tuesday, a fatal traffic collision occurred on Grangeville Boulevard near 2nd Avenue.

The Sentinel wrote the crash involved two drivers–local musician Kevin Blake Willard, and tractor operator Kevin Muirhead.

Primary investigation revealed the accident happened when Willard, driving in a Chevrolet Silverado, pulled out from the eastbound side in order to pass slower traffic. According to officials, Willard failed to get back into his lane on time, resulting in a collision against a westbound Peterbuilt tractor-trailer driven by Muirhead.

The California Highway Patrol officers responded to the accident scene around 7:50 a.m. They immediately rendered aid to the two drivers who both appeared injured. Furthermore, Willard was reportedly transported to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno, where he later died.

Meanwhile, Muirhead was treated for sustained minor injuries.

As of later Thursday, the collision remains under investigation. Authorities said the participation of alcohol or drugs have been ruled out, and they are looking into other factors at this time.


We offer our condolences to the family members of Mr. Kevin Blake Willard, while our prayers remain with Mr. Kevin Muirhead.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
