One dead in fiery crash in Fresno County, CHP says

Local News

One person was killed in a fiery crash in Fresno County on Thursday morning, the California Highway Patrol said.

A driver crashed their vehicle into a tree, and it burst into flames, CHP said.

A passerby saw the wreckage on Watts Valley Road north of Bull Run and called it in around 7:45 a.m.

“It appears the vehicle just failed to negotiate the left-hand curve of the road, went onto the right shoulder through a barbed wire fence and into the tree,” CHP Sgt. Jeffrey Cipolla said.

The CHP said the driver died and was alone in the vehicle.

The victim was too badly burned for rescue workers to know if they were a man or a woman.

No other information was immediately available.
