Sanger Man Killed in Fresno County Bicycle Accident
A Sanger man was killed in a Fresno County bicycle accident on the morning of August 13, 2019. The incident occurred around 7:30 a.m. at McKinley Avenue and Temperance Avenue, just outside Clovis and Fresno city limits. A 17-year-old student of Clovis East High School was driving a Toyota minivan with four classmates. For unknown reasons, the vehicle veered onto the right shoulder of McKinley Avenue and collided with a man who was riding his bike in the area. The impact of the collision propelled the man from the bicycle. First responders transported him to Community Regional Medical Center. Sadly, he succumbed to his injuries during hospitalization. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) has identified the cyclist as 56-year-old Jack Viriyavong of Sanger. I would like to send my healing thoughts and prayers to the loved ones of Mr. Viriyavong in their time of grief and loss.
