Man Killed in Madera Head-On Collision
A Groveland man was killed in a Madera head-on collision on the evening of May 16, 2019. The car wreck occurred shortly before 5:30 p.m. along Avenue 15 just east of Santa Fe Drive. A man was driving his Ford Transit van eastbound along Avenue 15 as another man was driving his 2010 Chrysler 300 westbound. Witnesses at the scene told the California Highway Patrol (CHP) that the Chrysler driver veered into the oncoming lane and collided head-on with the Ford. The Chrysler driver was transported to the hospital for treatment of critical injuries. Sadly, the Ford driver passed away at the scene. Officials said that the identity of the decedent will be made available after his next-of-kin has been notified. I would like to send my healing thoughts and prayers to the loved ones of the deceased in their time of loss.
