May 26, 2011–Last Thursday night’s fatal collision in Visalia took the life of an 18 year old male named Connor Clark. It occurred on Mineral King at North Burke Street at about 10 pm. He was driving a white 2002 Jeep westbound on Mineral King and was hit by a 2008 Prius.
The Toyota driver, Owen Kim of Porterville was not injured, according to early reports.
Knowing little of the facts of this accident, it would appear that relevant issues include whether either party was speeding, whether seat belts were in use and the availability of liability insurance and uninsured motorist coverages for this claim. It will also need to be determined if either party was on the job.
