One person died after a diesel truck driver ran a stop sign and collided into a truck in Fresno County.

The collision happened around 3:20 p.m. Friday at Nebraska and Bethel avenues, CHP Fresno spokesperson Vic Taylor says.

The diesel truck was traveling eastbound on Nebraska Avenue and four people were traveling in a truck southbound on Bethel Avenue.

That’s when the driver of the diesel truck failed to yield to a stop sign and collided into the truck, Taylor says.

Three passengers survived with moderate injuries, Taylor says, but the fourth did not survive.

The diesel truck driver also suffered moderate injuries.

Officers ran the license of one of the truck’s occupants and it came back as out of state. The truck’s plate also came back as out of state, but from a different one as the license shows.

Taylor says it could have been a rental truck.

It is unclear who was the driver of the truck in the collision.

Drugs and/or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the collision, Taylor says.

There are no road closures.
