On Monday, December 1, 2014, a Porterville woman was killed in a vehicle accident. The Tulare County car collision occurred west of Porterville, at about 10:15 AM.
A 22 year old Strathmore man, was driving a 1999 Ford, west on Highway 190. The Ford was moving at a speed of 58 mph, when the vehicle smashed into the back of a Chevy, east of Road 193.
The 1996 Chevrolet, driven by a 44 year old woman, was stopped on the westbound highway, in an attempt to make a left-hand turn into a private driveway. The passenger in the Chevy automobile was Virginia Perez, of Porterville.
Perez sustained major injuries in the crash and was taken by ambulance to Sierra View Medical Center. She later died in the hospital.
No other information is available at this time.
