Injuries were reported after a car accident involving several vehicles on Highway 180 in Fresno on the night of March 28, 2020. Officials with the California Highway Patrol (CHP) said the incident occurred along the westbound lanes of SR-180 near the interchange with Highway 168. A driver of a Toyota Camry was reportedly traveling over 100 mph and rear-ended another car. The Toyota came to a rest in an embankment where it caught fire while the other vehicle became disabled along the highway and sparked a chain reaction collision. The incident involved a total of seven cars. One of the parties involved in the crash suffered unspecified injuries and was taken to a hospital in Selma. The driver of the Toyota sustained severe head injuries and was transported to Community Regional Medical Center. Once the Toyota driver is released from the hospital, they will be booked into the Fresno County Jail on various charges, according to CHP.
