March 14, 2014- The crash that happened in southwest Fresno on Friday, has been reported to have occurred at about 1:15 PM.

The Fresno police have reported that 12 people, which included 8 kids, were involved in the accident.

A motorcycle officer spotted a black Lexus traveling at about 70 miles per hour westbound down California Avenue.  Before the officer could even turn on his lights and go after the car, the Lexus ran a stop sign at the intersection of California and Fruit Avenue.  The car smashed into a Chevy Suburban, and some of the children were thrown out of the SUV.
