Fresno, CA (December 7, 2021) – As previously reported, a serious two-car crash happened at an intersection in Fresno on Tuesday, November 23. The wreck was reportedly caused by a drunk driver who has been identified as Israel Douglas. 

Douglas struck an Amazon delivery truck near the intersection of South Cedar and East Florence Avenues. The truck was pulling out of an Amazon warehouse at the time of the collision, officials said. 

When they arrived at the crash site, paramedics located the 23-year-old driver pinned inside the vehicle. He suffered major injuries due to the crash and required emergency transport to a local hospital for treatment. 

Douglas had three passengers with him at the time who sustained minor injuries. He remained unharmed, however. 

Officers discovered that Douglas was intoxicated at the time of the wreck and booked him into the Fresno County Jail. He was then charged with DUI causing great bodily injury.

Police have not identified the Amazon driver. Further details will be provided once available. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims in hopes of a full recovery.
