Fatal Car Crash on State Route 43 South of Lansing Ave
HANFORD, CA (January 1, 2018) – A fatal car crash took place shortly after New Year’s celebrations at 2:09 AM near Lansing Ave.
Early Monday morning, 2015 Nissan was driving south on Highway 43, when it swerved and crashed into a 2002 Cadillac Escalade. Cadillac driver Blas Robledo-Carranza, 41, and his passenger, Crisantema Alonso-Bar, 38, were transferred to Kaweah Delta Medical Center in Visalia for medical treatment for chest pain and cuts.
The 33 year old Nissan driver from Fresno was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity has not yet been released to the public.
State route 43 northbound and southbound were temporarily closed because of debris scattered over the lanes and antifreeze spillage. Tow trucks and cleaning crew were called to remove debris and other traffic hazards from the highway.
It is unclear whether or not alcohol or drug abuse played a role in this accident.
We send heartfelt sympathies to the friends and family of the victim.
