HANFORD, California (KSEE/KGPE) – Two people were killed in Hanford after a crash with a farm truck Friday night.
It happened just before 8 p.m. in the area of 7th Avenue and Grangeville Boulevard. CHP reports one of the two involved parties, including a silage truck, ran a stop sign.
The CHP says two people were inside a grey Cadillac CTS going North on 7th Avenue. A truck was heading West on Grangeville Boulevard when the Cadillac went into the road past the stop sign and was broadsided by the truck. The truck was empty at the time.
Neighbors said the intersection is a problem area where they have noticed several accidents.
“It needs a little more lighting maybe something a stop sign caution signs so people know to slow down in the intersection anything is better than we are doing right now,” said Javier Siva.
Both people inside the Cadillac died on impact. The driver of the truck was not majorly injured and is expected to be okay. Their identities have not been released.
