FRESNO, CA  – California Highway Patrol reports that a semi-truck crashed into a woman’s car in Fresno County Wednesday night, killing her.

An officer was dispatched to the area of Manning and Marks avenues in response to a report of a car crash involving a fuel-hauling semi-truck around 6:40 p.m. Police found a middle-aged woman’s car with fatal injuries when they arrived on the scene. The accident resulted in her death at the scene.

A police investigation revealed the woman had yielded to a stop sign before proceeding into the intersection, ending up in the path of the semi-truck. According to officials, the driver of the truck was not injured and there was no stop sign at the intersection.

Investigations are still underway to determine the cause of the crash.

Semi-Truck Accident Lawyer in Fresno

Over 3,000 people a year are killed or injured in tractor-trailer accidents in Southern California. Because of its 80,000-pound weight, a commercial vehicle can cause catastrophic injuries if it is involved in an accident. Despite the fact that most truck accidents are avoidable, they continue to negatively impact drivers. Commercial vehicles are larger than other vehicles, which makes them more likely to cause severe injuries to those in another vehicle.

It is common for people with traumatic injuries to require hospitalization, therapy, and various types of medical treatment for the long run as well. Hiring a expert semi-truck accident lawyer can help you recover compensation to help with bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and more.
