Two Killed in Madera Head-On Collision
Two people were killed in a Madera head-on collision on the afternoon of April 14, 2019. The incident occurred shortly before 4:30 p.m. along Avenue 12 in the vicinity of Avenue 34 1/2. Officials said a black Audi was traveling eastbound when, for unknown reasons, veered into oncoming traffic in the westbound lane and crashed into a Toyota 4-Runner. One of the five occupants in the Toyota was airlifted to the hospital, while three others were transported by ambulance. Sadly, one passenger in the Toyota passed away at the scene as well as the motorist of the Audi. Authorities have identified the decedents as a 17-year-old boy and 11-year-old boy, both residents of Madera. I would like to send my heartfelt thoughts and prayers to those mourning the loss of their loved one during this difficult time.
