 Police Arrest Fresno Hit-and-run Driver Suspect after Fatal Crash on June 18Driver Suspected of Killing 10-year-old Boy is Arrested

FRESNO, California (June 18, 2021) — Fresno Police arrested a suspect in a fatal hit-and-run crash Thursday night that killed a 10-year-old boy as he crossed the roadway.

Authorities detained a suspect and recovered a vehicle involved in the hit and run pedestrian accident.

Also, a woman alerted police that she saw a vehicle that matched the description of the one involved and had front-end damage.

The registered owner of the vehicle is believed to be the suspected hit-and-run driver, according to the Fresno Police Department.

Police did not release the identity of the adult Hispanic male driver at this time. However, detectives did mention the vehicle was located at Swift and West avenues in central Fresno.

The Fresno County Coroner identified the boy who died in the 11:30 p.m. crash as he walked across Friant and Fort Washington roads.

His family told authorities they pressed the walk button to activate the crosswalk. The child and the aunt lagged behind the other pedestrians. Investigators seek to find out if the traffic light changed to green for the driver, but regardless, the driver faces criminal charges for fleeing the scene.

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.

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.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case.
