A 9 year old boy, and two other juveniles, were walking on the sidewalk. The little boy was on his way to Brletic Elementary School.
At that time an 18 year old driver was attempting to make a U-turn, when he lost control of his pickup truck. The white truck veered up onto the sidewalk and hit the three minors. The pickup then crashed into a brick wall.
The boy died at the scene of the collision. The other victims, a 17 year old boy, and a 16 year old girl suffered injuries. They were taken to Community Regional Medical Center, in Fresno.
The crash is under investigation.
