1 killed on Pacheco Pass in big rig accident
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The eastbound lanes of Highway 152 were blocked because of a deadly big rig crash that happened Tuesday evening.
An Action News viewer sent us this video as he approached the burning big rig on the Pacheco Pass.
The CHP says the driver somehow drifted onto the shoulder, causing the crash and fire. He couldn't get out of the flaming wreckage and was pronounced dead at the scene. The accident also sparked a small grass fire.
Drivers were being diverted onto the center median to get by.
