Drivers Injured in Fresno County Fatal Collision
Fresno County, CA (March 28, 2023) – On Sunday, 47-year-old Ruben Rodriguez of Antioch sustained fatal injuries in a fiery 3-vehicle crash on Highway 180.
The California Highway Patrol says the collision unfolded just after 8:30 p.m. near South Sonoma Avenue.
According to the authorities, Rodriguez was driving a westbound Chevy when he swerved to the left and crossed over the center line. His vehicle sideswiped a Mustang traveling in the opposite direction and then collided head-on with a Toyota.
The Chevy burst into flames and Rodriguez was ejected from his car.
A CHP helicopter airlifted Rodriguez to Community Regional Medical Center, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Moreover, the other drivers in the other cars, a 40-year-old Mendota man and a 44-year-old Bakersfield woman, were also transported to the hospital with major injuries but officers expect them to survive.
