Fresno, CA (October 18, 2020) – On Saturday, 40-year-old Derris Kennedy of Alabama died in a pedestrian accident on the Highway 41 and Highway 180 interchange.
The deadly accident happened at about 1:30 a.m. when a vehicle hit Kennedy as he was walking in the traffic lanes of Highway 41.
A 2001 Suzuki Vitara traveling southbound at about 65 mph was not able to avoid him as he approached the Highway 180 connector.

Further, authorities have not yet identified why he was walking within the roadway.
