Woman Killed, Vienney Ignacio Seriously Injured in Clovis DUI Hit-and-Run Crash

CLOVIS (February 17, 2018) – One was killed and another was seriously injured after an alleged DUI hit-and-run crash in the area of Shepherd and Minnewawa avenues early Saturday, according to The Fresno Bee,

The accident took place at about 1:20 a.m.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said a Jeep was going south on Minnewawa Avenue when it was struck on the driver side by a Dodge. The Dodge was traveling west on Shepherd Avenue when it allegedly ran a stop sign and hit the other car.

The 50-year-old Del Rey woman driving the Jeep was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name has not been yet released pending notification of next of kin.

The passenger in the Jeep, 38-year-old Vienney Ignacio, was transported to Community Regional Medical Center with major injuries. Her condition was not released.

Meanwhile CHP affirmed that the driver of the Dodge, 42-year-old Americo Aguirre, fled after colliding with the victims. The Amarillo, Texas man was believed to have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.

Aguirre was located about near Willow and Perrin avenues. He was arrested and booked into Fresno County Jail, facing DUI and hit-and-run charges.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the family members and friends of the deceased during such a difficult time.


Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer

It is evident that Mr. Americo Aguirre will be held fully responsible for causing the collision that led to the death of the woman and injuries of her passenger. Regardless of his reasons, leaving the scene following a crash is a serious crime and punishable by law especially if the incident tragically killed and injured other individuals.

Aside from fleeing, the suspect is also accused of driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the deadly collision. These two factors leave the family of the deceased woman and Vienney Ignacio the right to pursue a wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party who has neglected the safety of other people on the road. The claim will include a recompense for the funeral costs, hospital bills, pain and suffering, loss of future income, and loss of love and companionship.

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.

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. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case.
