Fresno, CA (August 13, 2021) – Israel Lara lost their life in a fatal traffic accident that happened on a roadway in Fresno on the afternoon of Saturday, August 7. The collision occurred at around 2:20 p.m., according to reports.
Sources indicate that the wreck happened on Highway 180 near Oliver Avenue for reasons still under local police investigation. Lara, aged 60, was headed south on Oliver Avenue in their grey Ford Escort when they entered the westbound lanes of the highway.
A Ford Econoline headed west was then involved in a collision with Lara as well as a white Hyundai Tucson. The Ecoline spun out before overturning and stopping on the north shoulder.
The Hyundai then struck the driver-side of the Escort. Consequently, Lara was severely injured and later pronounced deceased. The other involved occupants suffered injuries and were transported to nearby medical centers for treatment. Their names have not been released at this time.
Police continue to investigate the cause of the collision.
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased at this time. Our thoughts are with those involved in hopes of a full and fast recovery.
Fresno Car Crashes
Vehicle collisions occur in California each and every day. In fact, these wrecks usually cause major safety risks and traffic disruptions for drivers traveling in the area. Every year, over 150,000 people sustain injuries in auto accidents throughout the state of California. Most car accidents, fortunately, result in only minor injuries for those involved. However, thousands of people sustain serious or even debilitating injuries due to vehicle accidents in the Golden State each year. Those who end up with serious injuries are often forced to undergo emergency medical treatment that can be expensive. Some may even require surgery and long-term care that could affect their life for weeks, months, or even years to come. Depending on the type of collision, the chances of serious and life-threatening injuries can be higher.
Accidents that are caused by negligence are more likely to leave injured victims with severe injuries including brain injuries, broken bones, and spinal cord injuries. Some forms of driver negligence that often result in injuries for those involved include speeding, driver distraction, and intoxication. High-speed accidents are more likely to leave victims with broken bones, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries, all of which require extensive medical treatment. These accidents can include people texting or using cellphones while driving, drunk driving, speeding, ignoring traffic control devices, and engaging in unsafe driving behaviors.
