On Sunday, October 14, 2018, a pedestrian was killed in an accident north of Visalia.  The Tulare County automobile collision happened on Highway 63, at around 7:00 PM.

A male and a 75-year-old female pedestrian were walking along the east shoulder of State Route 63, south of Avenue 368.  The walkers were trying to cross the highway to get to their place of residence.


As they crossed the roadway, Raymundo Ruiz, of Fresno, was driving his 2003 Toyota vehicle north.  Ruiz attempted to swerve out of the way as the pedestrians walked in front of his vehicle, but was unable to and struck the woman.

The victim suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.
