September 28, 2011- A man died after a fiery accident between a truck and a tractor in west Fresno County Wednesday evening.
The crash occurred at about 5:40 PM, on south James Road and Central Avenue, near Tranquility.
The tractor, pulling an agricultural spraying machine was traveling on the right shoulder of James Road, near Denver Avenue. When an out of control Chevy pickup truck, driven by a 22-year-old Cantua Creek man, plowed into the back of it.
The impact from the crash slammed the truck into the side of a bridge, trapping the driver inside; then it caught on fire.
The tractor driver and other witnesses tried to put out the flames with water, but could not.
Officers said the Chevy’s driver may have been alive after the crash, but died in the fire.
The tractor driver was not seriously hurt.
