December 31, 2011- A roll-over accident ended in one fatality, Saturday night, near Los Banos, northwest of Fresno. The crash occurred at about 7:30 PM.
Kurt Alan Knapp, of Turlock, was driving a 2002 Chevy Silverado truck northbound on Santa Fe Grade Road, just south of Gun Club Road, at about 55-60 mph.
The Chevy drifted off the road onto the right shoulder. Knapp over-corrected by turning the pickup to the left and lost control. The Chevy flipped over and came to rest on its roof in about 4 feet of water.
A 29 year-old passenger in the truck was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision.
Knapp sustained major injuries and had to be airlifted to Memorial Medical Center in Modesto.
Knapp is suspected to have been driving under the influence of alcohol.
