Fresno, CA – Tractor-Trailer and SUV Collide on Highway 99
Fresno, CA (July 17, 2018) – A crash between an SUV and a large commercial tractor-trailer resulted in a fiery wreck in the southbound lanes of Highway 99 on Tuesday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol. The collision that took place at the Fresno Street off-ramp reportedly occurred at around 10:55 a.m.
After the impact of the collision, the Honda SUV that was involved was apparently off the highway on the right shoulder of the roadway. The tractor-trailer reportedly engulfed in flames due to the crash. Emergency responders were immediately called to the scene, and paramedics arrived promptly in order to assist anyone who may have been injured during the accident.
A speculative report stated that one woman was tragically killed in the collision, but that has not been confirmed. Additionally, it is currently unclear whether or not any other injuries were sustained in the accident. At this time, the cause of the potentially fatal crash is unknown, and the names of those involved have not yet been released. A detailed and thorough investigation is currently ongoing in order to establish the events that led to the collision, and who may have been at fault.
Our thoughts and prayers are currently with any family members and victims who may be affected by this accident.

Although the extent of injuries and/or whether or not this crash resulted in a fatality is unclear at the moment, investigators will certainly be looking to determine liability. Trucking accidents are often handled a little differently in that the trucking company is often found to be responsible for the collision. Depending on the results of the investigation, there may very well be solid grounds for personal injury and/or wrongful death lawsuits to follow.
