Child Killed After Truck Accident in Fresno County
An 11-year-old child from Delhi was killed after a truck accident involving multiple vehicles in Fresno County on the afternoon of May 10, 2020. The big rig crash occurred around 1:20 p.m. on northbound Highway 99, just south of Mountain View Avenue between Kingsburg and Selma, CA. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that a tractor-trailer hauling fruit was allegedly unable to stop in time when approaching slowed traffic, collided with five cars, and burst into flames. Two of the vehicles the big rig struck also engulfed in flames. Sadly, an 11-year-old Delhi girl and student of El Capitan Elementary School passed away in the 18-wheeler crash. The driver of the big rig, a 60-year-old man from Dinuba, CA, may face charges for gross vehicular manslaughter in connection to the multi-vehicle accident, the CHP recently reported.
