Fatal 3-Car Accident in Tulare, at Hillman Street and Pacific Avenue

On Thursday, October 26, 2017, a three-car collision ended in fatality, in Tulare.  The multiple vehicle accident happened on Hillman Street, at about 6:30 PM.

A 70-year-old man driving a white Hyundai Accent was headed north on Hillman Street.  At that time Tina Correia, 50, was driving a maroon GMC Yukon SUV south on Hillman, with two children in the vehicle.


Near Pacific Avenue, the Hyundai swerved into the southbound lane into the path of the Sport Utility Vehicle.

Correia attempted to avoid the automobile but ended up broadsiding it.

A Chevrolet pickup truck that was following the SUV then hit the Hyundai.

The Accent’s driver died at the scene.

Correia suffered minor injuries and was taken to Kaweah Delta Medical Center, in Visalia.  Her passengers and the driver of the Chevy were not harmed.

Investigation is needed to determine whether the vehicle malfunctioned and whether road conditions may have contributed to the accident. Please give Attorney John Rozier a call. Your lawyer for all wrongful deaths, and car collisions. 559-713-0159, or contact the firm online.
