Fresno, CA (November 13, 2021)– On Friday, two people sustained major injuries in a multi-vehicle crash on Walnut Avenue.
Officers said the incident happened at the intersection with Lincoln Avenue.
Witnesses said a northbound sedan failed to stop at a marked stop sign and crashed with a big rig and a truck.

When driving, better to scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead in order to look out or recognize potential hazards in time. Our bodies weren’t designed to travel at 50mph. We were designed for speeds of less than 10mph. Thus, you need to learn to consciously break that natural instinct and focus farther ahead.
Most importantly, do not drink if you are driving. Drinking and driving are not a good combination.
Injuries in Big Rig Crash
Moreover, for many people, driving is essential in order to move about in their everyday lives. However, it is one of the most dangerous activities we do.
Sadly, many people do not know what to do in the event of a traffic accident.
Furthermore, according to the United States Department of Transportation, there are approximately 300,000 merging accidents every year.
So, in case of accidents like this one, it is crucial that everyone remain calm in order to properly handle the immediate aftermath of an automobile collision.
Meanwhile, here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving and avoid accidents:
– Always drive at a controllable speed.
– Never assume you know the other driver’s intention.
– Also, be prepared to positively react to other drivers.
– This one, we should never neglect: yield at intersections, even if you have right of way.
– Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as mobile phones unstrapped toddlers, etc.
