Two people are dead after their Ford Expedition was broadsided by a big rig. The crash happened on Avenue 400 and Road 56 west of Dinuba in Tulare County.

PG&E crews are working to hold up the power pole that was sheared off in the crash, so first responders can remove the remains of the two people killed in the Expedition. Investigators say power is still running through the undamaged power lines.

The crash happened at the intersection a few hundred feet from where the wreck ended up. Investigators say it appears the big rig was southbound on Road 56, ran a stop sign and collided with the Expedition that was eastbound on Avenue 400, those vehicles then collided into another vehicle in the northbound lane of Road 56.

A woman who lives down the road says she heard the crash, and put her nursing skills into action to help the surviving victims of this crash.

"First I checked to see what people needed help and seeing the two elder patients I attended to them," said Sylvia Andrade. "The other two people, we wouldn't have been able to help them anymore.

California Highway Patrol investigators are still working to determine who is at fault for this deadly crash. No one has been cited or arrested at this time.

The driver of that big rig was uninjured in the crash, and the victims from the other car are in the hospital with minor to moderate injuries.
