2 killed, 2 injured after collision at intersection

A two-car accident on July 26 resulted in the death of two people and injuries for two others, according to a report from the California Highway Patrol. The car accident happened southeast of Delano when two cars collided at an intersection around 10:55 a.m. After conducting an initial investigation, police did not believe that alcohol or drugs were factors in the fatal car crash.

The car accident took place when a 28-year-old man traveling eastbound in a sedan failed to stop at a stop sign. At the same time, a 24-year-old driver in a truck headed southbound traveled through the intersection, which did not have a stop sign, and struck the sedan. It is unknown how fast either of the cars had been traveling.

The force of the collision caused both vehicles to overturn. After being ejected from the vehicle, the driver of the sedan and his 27-year-old passenger were both pronounced dead at the scene. The truck driver and his 23-year-old passenger both suffered from minor injuries and were transported to Delano Regional Hospital for treatment.

When someone is injured in a car accident by no fault of their own, they may choose to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver at fault. In cases where the at-fault driver is no longer living, an injured victim may still seek compensation from the deceased person's estate. A personal injury lawyer might be able to help an injured victim through the process of filing a claim by helping them gather evidence and presenting their case to a judge. This compensation could recover the cost of medical bills, lost income and other accident-related expenses.
