FRESNO, CA – According to authorities, two people were injured in a collision between two SUVs on Tuesday just before 9:00 p.m. The two vehicles did not come to a complete stop before entering the intersection where there was a power outage, according to the police, which is where the accident occurred on Tulare Street and Chestnut Avenue.

The two cars kept going through the intersection and collided, with one of them ending up in the front yard of a house. Then, the car’s passengers were taken to the hospital. There were no injuries reported by passengers in the second car.

According to authorities, the accident occurred as a result of the blackout; PG&E has been busy today fixing power outages across the city. The outages’ connection to the weather is yet unknown.

The crash is being further investigated by police.

Fresno Car Accident Attorney

The effects of a car accident can last a lifetime for both the victims and their families. Our state has more than 270,000 accidents each year. While we would like everyone to walk away without any issues from accidents, this isn’t always the case. Every year, more than 3,200 people lose their lives in automobile accidents in California. Most of these accidents are the result of human error. Around 80% of all vehicle collisions occur due to reckless driving, negligence, speeding, driving while impaired, and other careless actions.

It is always difficult to lose a loved one. Even more painful is the knowledge that your loved one died in a preventable accident. Additionally, families are forced to endure endless mental and emotional suffering, as well as spending tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment, property damage, funeral services, and more. Families who have suffered wrongful death due to the negligence of others can contact a wrongful death attorney in California to explore legal options after losing a loved one in an accident.
