August 26, 2011- A 16 year old Chowchilla boy, Jose Trinidad, died Friday evening when the car he was a passenger in was struck head-on by a man suspected of drunk driving.
Trinidad was in the front passenger seat of a 2001 Hyundai that was headed north on Golden State Boulevard, a frontage road on the west side of Highway 99. The accident occurred north of Avenue 20, between Chowchilla and Madera, about 15 minutes north of Fresno, right before 9 PM.
Trinidad was one of four teenagers in the Hyundai, when it was hit by a 2006 Infiniti that was driving south on Golden State Blvd.
The Infiniti’s driver, Sancho Kibufu, of Encino, was reportedly driving at a high speed when he crossed the center line and crashed into the Hyundai.
Kibufu was taken to Madera Community Hospital with major injuries, before being arrested for felony DUI and vehicular manslaughter.
The driver of the Hyundai, a 19 year old man, and the two other passengers, were taken to the hospital with moderate injuries.
