FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – A 36-year-old man who the California Highway Patrol says was killed after the car he was in collided with a concrete canal abutment Thursday night has been identified by the Fresno County Coroner’s Office.

CHP says around 10:00 p.m. a driver was on Ashlan Avenue east of Madsen Avenue when he allowed his vehicle to veer off of the roadway onto the north dirt shoulder and collided with a concrete canal abutment causing the vehicle to be torn apart, ultimately ejecting the driver.

The driver was taken to a local hospital where he later died. He was later identified as 36-year-old Juan Luis Guevara of Fresno.
