Deadly crash in Northwest Fresno

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A person has died after crashing into a wall along the eastbound lanes of W Herndon Avenue in Northwest Fresno early Monday morning.

The Fresno Police Department says that at 2:30 am, the silver Ford pickup truck hit the curb on the south side of the road near N West Avenue, then hit the center median, then possibly rolled and slammed into the cinder the block wall on the south side of Herndon.

The male driver was partially ejected from the truck and died. A female passenger was walking around after the accident and initially refused medical attention.
