Orange Cove, CA (August 8, 2020) – One man has lost his life in a T-bone accident reported in Fresno County on Thursday. Just after 5 p.m., on August 6, the California Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on South Jacobs Center Road.

Reports provided by CHP show that a black sedan was traveling through the intersection of South Jacobs Center Street and Manning Avenue when their vehicle collided with a second vehicle at the intersection. The impact of the crash sent both vehicles to the shoulder where they crashed into a telephone pole and burst into flames. The driver in the black car sustained fatal injuries and was declared deceased at the scene. The driver of the second vehicle was transported to an area hospital for treatment of minor injuries. At this time, the crash remains under investigation.

Our thoughts go out to the victims, their families, and everyone else who was affected by this fatal car accident.
