2 killed in head-on crash in Fresno County, CHP says

FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- Two people have been killed in a head-on crash in Fresno County on Friday evening.

The California Highway Patrol says the violent wreck happened near Zediker and Belmont just before 6 pm when a Toyota Camry tried passing two vehicles.

That's when the Camry slammed head-on with a Toyota Corolla.

The 41-year-old man driving the Camry, later identified as Erin Olsen of Kingsburg, died at the scene.

The 42-year-old man driving the Corolla, later identified as Jose Ruiz Zelaya of Fresno, also died.
