Kerman, CA (July 30, 2021) – A fatal crash took the lives of two individuals on a roadway in Kerman on the evening of Monday, July 26. The wreck was reported to authorities in the area just after 8:00 p.m. 

According to reports, a 19-year-old man and his 19-year-old female passenger were traveling west on California Avenue at a high rate of speed in a Chevrolet pickup. They were just east of Howard Avenue.  

The driver was identified as Joseph Rodriguez of Kerman, who failed to control his vehicle and allowed it to veer into California Avenue’s eastbound lanes, directly into the path of the Chevrolet pickup. 

The two vehicles were involved in a head-on crash, according to information from officials. Rodriguez along with his female passenger, identified as Alissa Campos, lost their lives at the scene. 

The driver and passenger in the second vehicle were transported to Community Regional Medical Center in order to receive treatment for injuries they sustained in the crash. We hope for their full recovery. 

Nothing further has been reported to the public at this time. Our thoughts are with everyone involved. 

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased at this time. 

Car Wrecks in Fresno

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people are injured in auto accidents across the state of California. Although many accidents result in minor injuries for those involved, a substantial number of accidents cause life-altering injuries, like brain trauma and spinal cord injuries, that require extensive medical treatment. These painful injuries have an overwhelming impact on the health and wellbeing of victims. Not only are they left to deal with pain and suffering, but the financial burdens victims and their families face are often substantial. Having to go through extensive medical treatment, months of therapy, and repeat surgeries can have stacking consequences on victims for several years following their accidents.

Determining the exact cause of a traffic accident may be difficult due to the large number of factors involved in the event. Many different concerns may need to be considered in a personal injury claim, including speeding, intoxication levels, weather conditions, and more. Crash victims might be confused about what to do after being injured in a car crash caused by negligence. It is advisable to contact a Fresno personal injury attorney who has vast experience in working on cases like yours. This will increase your chances of receiving full and fair financial compensation for your injuries and losses. 

The vast majority of these accidents are caused by human error. In fact, statistics show that reckless driving, negligence, speeding, driving while impaired, and other careless actions while operating vehicles contribute to around 80% of collisions each year. Losing a loved one under any circumstances can be challenging to accept. Knowing that your loved one died in a preventable accident just makes the situation even more emotional. 

Not only are families forced to endure endless mental and emotional suffering, but they are often required to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment, property damages, funeral services, and more.
