On Saturday, March 11, 2017, an automobile collision ended in fatality, north of Kettleman City. The Kings County head-on car crash took place on Highway 41, at about 5:30 AM.
A Fresno man, 36, was driving a 2016 Isuzu northbound on State Route 41. The driver was reported to have fallen asleep and the vehicle drifted into oncoming traffic, near Quail Avenue.
At that time, a Tulare man was driving a 1996 GMC, headed south on the highway. The GMC did not have time to swerve out of the way when the other vehicle drove into the lane, and the two collided head-on.
The Tulare man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The other driver suffered major injuries. He was taken to Community Regional Medical Center, in Fresno.
While our condolences go out to the friends and family of the victim, we recognize that no monetary sum can ease the pain and loss felt after a tragedy such as this.
However, just monetary compensation can help ease the burden of medical bills, final expenses, and help support any dependents left behind by the deceased.
