A small community is mourning the loss of a young boy, killed in a car crash near Reedley. The Fresno County Coroner has identified him as 10-year-old Miguel Perez Jr. He was a 5th grade student at Sheridan Elementary in Orange Cove. Perez died Sunday when a pickup truck ran a stop sign and collided with the car he was riding in. Friends say he was on his way home to celebrate his little sister's birthday. At this point, the driver of the truck isn't facing any charges. Investigators say she wasn't under the influence of drugs or alcohol. They say she just wasn't paying attention and missed the stop sign.
