December 28, 2011- Two Fresno residents were killed in an accident involving two vehicles, on Highway 152 in Merced County, five miles east of the Santa Clara County border, northwest of Fresno. The crash occurred on Wednesday, at about 4:19 PM.
Mikael Mikaelian, 70, of Clovis, was driving a 2006 Toyota Camry eastbound on Hwy 152, at about 65 mph. He failed to make a right-hand curve correctly and traveled across the center median and into the oncoming westbound traffic.
Mikaelian slammed into a 2004 Ford F-250, driven by Theodore Haynish, 52, of Hollister.
Two passengers in the Camry; Edward Arshag Kalpakian, 84 and Anahid Kalpakian, 76, both from Fresno, were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. It is reported that Edward was in the front passenger seat, while Anahid was seated in the back of the Camry.
Mikaelian suffered serious injuries and had to be medi-flighted to Memorial Medical Center in Modesto.
Haynish received minor injuries and said he would go to the doctor on his own, to receive treatment.
All parties were wearing their safety restraints. The CHP said that alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
