San Joaquin Valley Vehicle Accident Lawyer John Rozier has the subsequent update; On Monday, July 11, 2016, a Fresno man was killed in a truck collision, near Mendota. The Fresno County head-on big rig crash happened on Jefferson Avenue, at around 1:37 PM.
Herman Toews, 74, was driving a 2010 GMC pickup truck eastbound on West Jefferson Avenue, southeast of Mendota. Just west of Santa Fe Road the pickup drifted across the yellow line, right into the path of a semi truck.
The Peterbilt tractor-trailer, driven by a 71-year-old Los Banos man, tried to swerve out of the way. The big rig was unable to avoid crashing head-on into the GMC.
Toews was pronounced dead at the scene.
The semi driver suffered severe injuries. He was airlifted to Community Regional Medical Center, in Fresno, for treatment.
