Fresno, California (March 26, 2020) – At least one person complained of pain following a three-vehicle crash on Wednesday afternoon in Fresno, according to a California Highway Patrol dispatch.
The crash occurred on southbound Highway 41 and Highway 180 connector at around 3:18 p.m. Wednesday, March 25.
As per the report, three cars collided for unknown reasons.
Responding emergency crews along with medical personnel treated at least one person for minor injuries. The name of the injured party and their current condition were not immediately provided.
The vehicles were towed away from the scene.
No additional information concerning this crash was released.
The incident remains under investigation.
According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary to clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, regardless of the circumstances involved, liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.
