October 5 fatal train accident in Fresno

On October 5 Daniel Madsen was pronounced dead after being hit by a train near the intersection of Fruit Avenue and Ashlan Avenue in Fresno. Reportedly twelve-year-old Madsen was walking to school at Wawona Middle School with his sister and some friend when his sister and a friend ran north on Fruit in front of an oncoming train. Madsen followed the girls and ignored the crossing arms that had been lowered. The conductor of the train sounded the train’s horn, but Daniel was hit as he crossed the tracks. This is the second train accident at this location in recent memory that has resulted in death. In March 2009 thirteen-year-old Stacy Frierson was killed while crossing the tracks when he was walking home from Cooper Middle School.
