February 12, 2012- Two separate crashes shut down Highway 99, at Avenue 184, on Sunday. The accidents happened at 12:40 PM and a short time after that, between Tulare and Tipton.
The first crash, was a solo-vehicle rollover on the off-ramp near the rest area. A person from that crash was taken by helicopter to Fresno Community Regional Medical Center. Injuries are unknown at this time.
This blocked one of the highway lanes causing traffic to back up bumper to bumper along 99, according to CHP reports.
Then a second collision occurred shortly after the first, with one vehicle rear-ending another due to distraction and traffic from the first collision, stated the report.
