Fresno County, CA – Two Dead after Brutal Collision Involving Three Semi-Trucks on Northbound Interstate 5

Fresno County, CA (July 17, 2018) – Local news sources reported that an accident involving three semi-trucks took place on the northbound lanes of the Interstate 5 Freeway near Shields Avenue. The incident happened at approximately 5:00 AM in the early morning on Tuesday, July 17, 2018. As of today, authorities have identified one driver as 25-year old Arvin resident Luis Mendez Jr, who tragically died in the fatal accident on Tuesday. Authorities have not released any detailed information concerning the identities of Mendez’s female passenger or the other two truck operators at this time.

According to a report from the California Highway Patrol, a 1998 Freightliner and a 2011 International truck had decreased speed and stopped with backed up traffic on Interstate 5. Without warning, a Peterbilt truck operated by Mendez did not stop in time and, for indeterminate reasons, it slammed into the two stalled trucks. As part of a chain reaction, the Peterbilt crashed into the rear of the Freightliner, which ultimately plowed into the International.

CHP confirmed Mendez and his female passenger were killed as a result of the impact.

At this time, officials have not specified if the other two drivers and any additional passengers had been injured.

As of now, the investigation is ongoing.

We extend our deepest condolences and most heartfelt prayers to the family and friends of Luis Mendez Jr. and his female passenger during this difficult and tragic time.

Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer

California Law dictates that pedestrians must be given the right of way. Drivers must comply by decreasing vehicle speed in marked or unmarked walking zones, and failure to do so will result in potentially serious consequences. For this particular case, officials will consider distracted/negligent driving and DUI as contributing factors to the accident.

By law, the pedestrian has the right to issue a wrongful injury lawsuit against the truck driver and the company that owns the truck. Compensations will cover different issues ranging from medical bills to painful injuries.
