Andres Trujillo Fatally Struck on US 395

Franklin County, WA (November 08, 2021) – On Sunday, 46-year-old Andres Trujillo of Sunnyside died in a hit-and-run crash on US 395.

The fatal crash happened before 11:00 a.m. near Eltopia, approximately 11 miles north of Pasco.

Officers said Trujillo was parked along the southbound freeway’s shoulder. Trujillo was outside of his vehicle, securing the load on his trailer when another pickup truck and trailer passed. 

Apparently, a heavy construction equipment loaded on the trailer struck Trujillo. Officers pronounced him dead at the scene.

Meanwhile, the involved driver did not stop.

Later on, the authorities located the driver and identified him as 79-year-old Darell Slippy from Pasco. 

Slippy said he did not have any idea he had struck someone.

Meanwhile, charges for Slippy are pending and the officers say drugs or alcohol was not a factor in the fatal incident.

The Washington State Patrol continues to investigate this crash.


Sweet Lawyers would like to express our sincere condolences to Andres Trujillo’s loved ones. May you find courage during this difficult time.


Dies in Traffic Crash

When a person dies or killed due to another person’s negligence or misconduct, the loved ones of the deceased can sue the negligent parties for the damages that they caused.

Some of the instances that could result in a wrongful death are homicide, medical malpractice, transportation accidents like the hit-and-run crash on US 395, pedestrian collisions, and any other instance caused by the wrongdoing of another person.

In filing for a wrongful death case, there is a time limit on when family members can take legal action.

These restrictions are called the statute of limitations. Unfortunately, it only allows the bereaved to file a wrongful death lawsuit within a certain amount of time.

So, when these expire, the legal claim is no longer valid and the family of the deceased can no longer file a lawsuit.

That is why it is important to know and understand these time limitations, as they vary from state to state and case to case.

With this in mind, we recommend for you to reach us at Sweet Lawyers to know more about how a wrongful death case could help you and your family. Our number is (800) 674 7852.
