According to the details shared by the Fresno County Fire Department, the precise location of the crash on Highway 180 was close to Sanger. The person who suffered serious injuries in the crash was traveling in a vehicle near Highway 180 and Bethel Avenue. It isn’t clear if the victim was the driver or a passenger in the vehicle.
As the vehicle reached near the intersection, it ran into an accident. Authorities have not confirmed the precise nature of the crash or details regarding any other persons or vehicles who may have been involved.
Once the crash was called in, the county Fire Department and other local authorities responded to the crash scene. The nature and extent of the injuries caused by the crash are not known. However, at least one person with serious injuries was airlifted to an area hospital for emergency treatment.
