A car accident in southeast Fresno claimed the life of one man and left two others injured on the night of February 17, 2019. The collision occurred shortly before 7:00 p.m. along Chestnut Avenue just south of Church Avenue. Officials responding to the scene found three vehicles, including a Jeep Cherokee that overturned in the crash. A preliminary report suggested that the Jeep was traveling with a Toyota sedan and a third vehicle when the collision occurred. Two passengers in the Jeep, both children, were transported to a local hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries. Their ages were not immediately available, but they were reported to be in good and stable condition by authorities. Sadly, one additional passenger in the Jeep succumbed to their injuries at the scene. Authorities have identified the decedent as 19-year-old Hector Sandoval of Los Angeles. Our deepest sympathies and condolences are with those grieving the loss of their loved one during this difficult time.
