On Wednesday, March 29, 2017, a big rig crash ended in fatality, near Caruthers.  The Fresno County tractor-trailer collision happened on Manning Avenue, at around 8:00 AM.

The California Highway Patrol reported that the accident occurred at the intersection of Manning and West avenues.

A Hyundai automobile stopped at the stop sign, but then pulled out directly into the path of a semi truck.

The rig did not have time to stop and the two vehicles collided.  The incident caused power lines to be knocked down.

The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene.

Issues still remaining to be investigated include determining the speed of the big rig, whether road conditions may have contributed to this accident, and whether the facts of this accident as reported are accurate.
