Car Accident on Highway 99 near Selma involving a Big Rig Injures Jose Cardenas

 
Selma, CA (May 11, 2020) – A fiery multi-vehicle collision resulting in one death happened on Sunday at around 1:20 in the afternoon.
 
The fiery collision injured multiple people as well, occurring on the northbound lanes of Highway 99, south of Mountain View.
 
Emergency crews responding to the scene say the accident involved a semi-truck and five other vehicles.
 
CHP spokesperson Mike Salas reported traffic north bound slowing down due to construction, but a semi truck driver carrying fruit, now identified as Deudiel Ramirez, 60, did not stop in time as it approached the traffic jam, causing a chain reaction crash.
 
The big rig collided into other five vehicles, resulting in a fire.
 
An 11-year-old girl died trapped inside one of the vehicles.
 
In addition, 61-year-old Jose Cardenas, a resident of Kingsburg, sustained injuries in a 2017 GMC van. It is unknown at this time if he has any passengers in his van.
 
In total, the traffic jam-turned accident injured 15 people, 10 of them so seriously hurt that responders transported them to the Community Regional Medical Center.
 
Neither alcohol nor drugs appear to be a reason of the crash.

Aftermath of Crash on Highway 99

 
The big rig driver remained at the scene and is cooperated in the investigation, Salas also said.
 
Both lanes at Highway 99 closed, and traffic is rerouted to Floral Avenue, and later to Mountain View, says CHP.
 
Subsequently, those lanes were reopened after the investigation and cleanup ceased.
