January 8, 2012- A fog related crash causes a three car pile-up, in Hanford, west of Visalia. The accident happened on Sunday, at about 12:25 AM.
Guillermo Miranda was traveling eastbound on Kansas Avenue, past 12th Avenue, when he tried to pass a slow moving Honda Accord in front of him.
Reports said that at the time of the crash, thick fog made it difficult to see past 500 feet.
As Miranda’s Chevy moved into the opposing lane he saw a Honda Civic headed straight toward him. Miranda accelerated and tried to get around the Accord in time, but crashed into the front end of the Civic.
The impact of the collision caused the Chevy to spin around, and slammed into the left side of the Accord that he had been trying to pass.
Miranda suffered serious injuries, and his passenger, Angela Miranda, sustained moderate injuries. Both were taken to Kaweah Delta Medical Center, in Visalia.
The three occupants of the Civic; Roman Martinez, Arnolfo Leon, and Maria Leon, of Delano, were also injured and taken to Community Regional Medical center, in Fresno.
The Accord’s driver, Martha Calderon received minor injuries and sought medical attention on her own.
