A crash involving six vehicles on Highway 99 in Fresno County has left one child dead and 10 people hospitalized, in what a CHP officer described as ‘absolute carnage.’ The accident happened in the northbound lanes of Highway 99 just south of Selma, around 1:15 Sunday afternoon. The driver of the big rig admitted to police that he did not see traffic ahead of him stop. He slammed into five other vehicles. One child, an 11 year old girl, was left dead as a result of the accident and 10 others were left in the hospital.
CHP Spokesperson Mike Salas said the accident was a tragedy and cautioned drivers to slow down on the roads, especially in areas where construction is taking place. “It’s absolutely gut-wrenching. It’s just the worst possible outcome we could have possibly imagined on Mother’s day. There’s going to be definitely a grieving family, among others, but the loss of a child is just unimaginable”
