Linda Chang and Allison Chang Dead in Fresno Multi-Vehicle Accident
FRESNO, CA (December 28, 2020) – Late Saturday, Linda Chang, 21, and Allison Chang, 17, and two others died in a multi-vehicle crash on Palm Avenue and Bullard Avenue.
Moreover, the accident led to the closure of Palm Avenue and Bullard Avenue. Even so, the roads reopened mid-morning on Sunday.
Following multiple reports, authorities arrived at the scene and found debris scattered on the road and into a parking lot. They also spotted tires in the lot and an engine for one of the vehicles along the wall of a nearby establishment.
At this time, the authorities are still investigating what led to the fatal crash. Moreover, the authorities claim that a black Ford Mustang driver traveled at a high speed on Bullard Avenue. Then, the driver failed to yield at a red light on Palm Avenue.
As a result, it hit at least one of the two other vehicles. The said vehicles were identified as a white Toyota Tacoma pickup and a silver Mini Cooper.
After the Fresno Fire Department extracted the Mustang driver from the wreckage, they took him to CRMC. Unfortunately, he also died at the hospital.
Meanwhile, a 17-year-old female driver of the Mini Cooper suffered minor injuries. Responders also took her to the hospital.
The other occupants of the truck were transported to the hospital in critical and stable condition, respectively.
Fresno County Sheriff’s Department later released the names of the four victims as Linda Chang, Allison Chang, Irvin Villarreal, 18, and Christopher Vang, 27.
With heavy hearts, Sweet Lawyers sends our sincere condolences to the families and loved ones of the four deceased.
