Driver Struck and Killed in Traffic Crash Near Avenue 328
TULARE COUNTY, CA (July 3, 2023) – Tuesday night, a car accident on Highway 99 claimed the life of a 32-year-old man.
The fatal incident occurred shortly before 11:00 p.m. along the southbound SR-99, north of Avenue 328.
According to the police, a Ford driver veered onto the left and into the center divider before crashing into a concrete wall.
Reports from the incident stated the Ford driver managed to exit the vehicle that was partially blocking the Highway 99 fast lane. However, investigators claimed that the driver failed to activate his hazard lights.
