57-Year-Old Selma Man Dies after Crash on Highway 99 in Fresno
Fresno, CA (July 7, 2022) – Thursday morning, a 57-year-old man died, and his 10-year-old passenger sustained injuries in a crash on Highway 99.
The fatal crash in Fresno happened at around 7:30 a.m. on July 7.
CHP said a big rig was going northbound on the 99 in the center lane. The driver then moved into the left lane– and into a Toyota Prius that was already in that lane.
The trailer and the Prius caught fire.
Moreover, the Prius had two occupants. Strangers immediately helped the girl that was asking for help and extricated her from the vehicle.
However, the driver died at the scene. The Freightliner driver remained at the scene and sustained no injuries.
Investigators said alcohol and/or drugs are not suspected to be a factor.
