Fresno, CA (February 22, 2021) – A three-year-old boy remains in critical condition tonight, February 22, after an auto accident that occurred on the evening of February 21. Information provided by authorities in Fresno indicated that shortly before 8:00 p.m., a mother and her two twins, both age 3, were involved in a severe collision that left all three of them with injuries. 

The family of three was stopped on Belmont Avenue behind a Producers Dairy truck waiting for the truck to turn onto Palm Avenue. Sources stated that Ray Anthony Pittman, 47, then rear-ended the family’s vehicle. 

All three of them, the mother and her two toddlers, were transported from the scene with injuries. The three-year-old boy is in critical condition at the hospital due to the collision. The mother and her 3-year-old daughter both sustained moderate injuries and are expected to recover. 

Pittman was determined to have been driving while intoxicated by police who were working at the crash site. He was booked into the county jail on the night of February 21 with charges including driving under the influence and causing great bodily injury. 

We would like to offer our thoughts to the family involved in this severe accident. We hope for their full recovery. 

An investigation into the circumstances of the accident is currently active.
