Fresno, CA (June 12, 2020) – On June 10, Andrales Wallace-Matthews killed 2 teenagers in a hit-and-run crash on Highway 198 near Highway 99. He also left Tommy Eslick with severe injuries.
The crash happened Wednesday around 4 am on the westbound Highway 198 in Fresno, according to CHP reports.
A 16-year-old girl is walking along the westbound Highway 198 when Wallace-Matthews’s vehicle hit her.
The driver lost control of the vehicle, overturning and crashing in a ravine. As a result, the vehicle trapped three passengers, who did not wear seatbelts.

Meanwhile, the rescuers rushed the 16-year-old pedestrian to Kaweah Delta Medical Center and later transferred to Valley Children’s Hospital.
