Fresno County Double Fatality Accident
A Fresno County double fatality accident occurred on the night of March 4 along Highway 180 near Hayes Avenue, just west of Fresno. According to a preliminary report by the California Highway Patrol (CHP), a man was driving a 2018 Mercedes-Benz eastbound along the westbound lane of Highway 180 shortly after 11:00 p.m. At the same time, a woman was driving a 2015 Honda west along the highway and was unable to avoid the oncoming Mercedes-Benz. This resulted in a head-on collision. Sadly, both drivers succumbed to their injuries at the scene. Officials have identified the decedents as 22-year-old Yvette Jimenez of Firebaugh and 23-year-old Emad Murshed of Kerman. I would like to send my sincere thoughts and condolences to the loved ones of Ms. Jimenez and Mr. Murshed in their time of loss.
