Child Dead, Meghan Martzen and Scott Martzen Injured in Selma DUI Collision on Rose Avenue and Bethel Avenue

 
SELMA, CA (February 26, 2019) – An 8-year-old boy died after a DUI crash involving the car he was riding in with his parents on Saturday, February 23.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, the boy and his parents, 29-year-old Meghan Martzen and driver 33-year-old Scott Martzen, were in a Kia Optima eastbound on Rose Avenue at Bethel Avenue shortly after 10 p.m.
 
CHP spokesman Victor Taylor said that 35-year-old Karmjit Singh ran the flashing stop signs on northbound Bethel Avenue at approximately 100 mph.
 
The front of Singh’s BMW 750i slammed into the passenger side of the Optima and it landed on its wheels in a dry irrigation canal. The Optima crashed into a tree, Taylor stated.
 
The boy, who was riding in the right rear passenger seat, was revived by firefighters at the scene and rushed to Selma Hospital where staff found a pulse. He was then airlifted to Valley Children’s Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. A GoFundMe account was set up to help his family with medical and funeral expenses.
 
His parents were brought to Selma Hospital with broken bones, according to CHP.
 
Singh, of Visalia, was driving on a suspended license following a DUI conviction in 2016, according to Taylor.
 
He was transported to Community Regional Medical Center, where he said he could not provide a breath sample. He was arrested and a blood sample was taken, according to the CHP. Singh was later medically cleared from the hospital and booked into Fresno County Jail.
