FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The California Highway Patrol is investigating a crash in Fresno County that left one woman dead.

That's when a SUV also traveling westbound on Church hit the sedan from behind - pushing it directly into the path of the van.

The driver of the van was unable to avoid the sedan and hit the passenger side.

A woman passenger in the sedan was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
