March 9, 2016- A big rig crash ended in fatality, near Lemoore on Wednesday. The Kings County car accident occurred at Kansas Avenue, at approximately 12:50 PM.
A 2016 Scion iA, driven by a female driver, was headed southbound on 18th Avenue. The automobile ran a stop sign at the intersection of Kansas Avenue, and smashed into a semi truck that had been traveling on Kansas.
The white car got trapped underneath the 2000 Freightliner, and was dragged for about 300 feet, before the tractor-trailer was able to stop.
The woman died at the scene of the crash.
Her three year old passenger sustained severe injuries. The child was taken by helicopter to Community Regional Medical Center, in Fresno.
The 45 year old Dos Palos man, who was driving the semi truck, was not injured.

However, just monetary compensation can help ease the burden of medical bills, final expenses, and help support any dependents left behind by the deceased.
