Fresno County Fatality Crash

A Fresno County fatality crash occurred on the afternoon of January 7. An elderly woman was driving a 2013 Chevrolet Equinox SUV west along Clayton Avenue just south of Fresno at approximately 5:00 p.m. At the same time, a 58-year-old Fresno woman was driving her 2005 Toyota northbound along Chestnut Avenue. The Chevrolet driver allegedly ran a stop sign and collided with the Toyota, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP). The impact of the collision propelled both vehicles into a 2006 Mercury SUV that was parked along the side of the road. Emergency personnel responding to the scene transported the Toyota driver to a local hospital for treatment of a femur fracture. Sadly, the Chevrolet driver succumbed to her injuries at the scene. Authorities have identified the victim as 72-year-old Linda Wankum from Exeter. I would like to extend my prayers and sympathy to those who have lost someone they love in this devastating accident.
