Fresno CA Highway Patrol units investigate fatal accident
A 71-year-old man died and two other men were seriously injured following a two-vehicle crash in Fresno County on Tuesday night.
The California Highway Patrol responded to the crash at 8:05 p.m. at the intersection of South De Wolf and East Floral Avenues in Selma.
CHP spokesman Mike Salas said the man was driving a West Chevrolet Suburban on Floral and approaching the De Wolf intersection.
A man driving a Chevrolet Silverado was traveling eastbound on Floral approaching the intersection when, for unknown reasons, the Suburban veered south directly into the Silverado’s path, causing a frontal collision.
The man from the Suburban was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Silverado and his passenger suffered life-threatening injuries.
Witnesses extracted the two men before the vehicle was completely engulfed, Salas said.
The conditions of the two men are not known.
Neither direction is controlled by stop signs, only north and southbound De Wolf has stop signs, Salas said.
