McNutt v. Power Transport & Logistics
Chain | Cohn | Clark filed a wrongful death claim on behalf of the family of Kathy Jane McNutt, 62, who was killed when a big rig failed to stop in time for slowing traffic, and read-ended the vehicle she was in on Highway 99 and Rosedale Highway.
Her pickup truck was pushed forward and collided with the rear of another semi truck. California Highway Patrol told local media there were no evidence of tire friction marks from the semi, showing the driver did not attempt to brake, leading them to believe negligence could have played a role.
McNutt was described as a loving grandma, mother, daughter, and sister.
The crash also killed 75-year-old Luther Goleman, of Lemoore, who was the passenger in the pickup truck.
