On the afternoon of November 9, two people were killed after a fiery car accident in Fresno County, according to authorities.
The deadly crash occurred about 4:00 p.m. at Del Rey and Central.
Officials said that a white car was heading north on Del Rey when the driver allegedly ran a stop sign and broadsided a Ford SUV. Both vehicles proceeded to tumble into an orchard, where the SUV caught on fire.
Two people died as a result of their injuries.
At this time, the investigation is still ongoing. It has not yet been confirmed whether alcohol or drugs played a role in this incident.
Officers with the California Highway Patrol (CHP) said that these crashes happened too often on country roads because drivers do not look out for road signs. Vigilance, restrain, and control are keys to safe driving. Vigilance means watching the road in front of you as well as your surroundings. Restrain means not speeding and not pulling reckless maneuvers due to impatience. Control means driving in tip top mental and physical shape – in other words, not drinking and driving, not being distracted while driving, and not driving while fatigued. Unfortunately, not every driver on the road exercise these key safety behaviors on the daily, putting not only themselves but others at risk of an injurious or even fatal accident.
