Torem & Associates

FRESNO, CA – The California Highway Patrol said that seven persons were hospitalized as a result of a five-car collision near Fresno on Saturday afternoon.

Just before 1:00 p.m., the CHP reports that its officers were informed of an accident in the vicinity of State Route 41, north of American Avenue. According to investigators, a car was traveling between 50 and 60 miles per hour in the southbound lanes of Highway 41 when it crashed into a line of cars that were at the lights. Additionally, they claim that the automobile was struck at full speed, forcing it to collide with the car in front of it and starting a chain reaction.

Overall, 10 persons reportedly suffered minor to moderate injuries, according to police. Seven of the ten people, one of whom was a toddler, were brought to nearby hospitals for medical attention. The CHP estimates that it took them 45 minutes to investigate and clean up the situation.
