Two Killed in Collision on Highway 41 in Fresno
Two people were killed in an accident on Highway 41 south of Fresno when a vehicle collided into traffic backed up at a stoplight. The incident occurred at Mt Whitney Ave. near Riverdale when a BMW traveling north slammed into backed-up traffic. A chain-reaction crash was set off involving three total cars.
The first car hit resulted in the deaths of the diver and passenger, a man and woman in their 50s. The female passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. The male driver of the car was airlifted to the hospital but ultimately did not survive his injuries. The driver of the BMW that caused the collision and those in the third vehicle hit, a truck, were not injured.
CHP responded to the scene. Highway 41 was shut down in both directions while officials responded to the scene. Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be factors in the incident which is still under investigation.
