FRESNO, CA (July 6, 2021) – Sunday, authorities arrested a driver after a fiery crash on Highway 180 and Peach Avenue.
The incident occurred after midnight on Highway 180 on-ramp and Peach Avenue.
According to the Fresno police, a vehicle attempted to get onto Highway 180. At the same time, a Chevy Tahoe traveled south on Peach Avenue.
