Deadly crash in Fresno County

December 6, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
One man is dead and 11 people were hospitalized after a three-car accident in Fresno County Saturday afternoon.The California Highway Patrol said the man who died stopped at a stop sign at Manning and Engelhard, but he drove into the intersection without yielding to an s.u.v. on Manning.

The s.u.v. hit him and he died from the impact. Four people got hurt in the s.u.v. and it bounced into another car, injuring seven more people.

The highway patrol marked the streets where it all happened. One of the cars banged into an electrical box. Officers said everybody was wearing seat belts, and that's probably why the 11 victims survived the accident.
