On Tuesday, March 6, 2018, a fatal hit-and-run accident occurred just outside of Tulare. The traffic collision took place on Highway 137, at approximately 8:30 PM.
According to authorities, a Visalia man was driving a Chevrolet truck west on State Route 137. Near Road 56, the driver, who was in his 50’s, lost control of the pickup and smashed into a fence.
The driver got out of the Chevy and walked into the street from the crash site and was struck by a car. The driver of that automobile then drove away from the collision.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Even though the driver may never be identified, the family of the deceased may have a valid uninsured motorist claim under their own insurance policy. Please give me a call, Attorney John Rozier. 559-713-0159 or reach the firm online. We are located in Visalia, on Caldwell Avenue.
