A Dinuba man was killed early Friday after his vehicle slammed into the back of a parked big rig on the side of the road, just east of Reedley, California Highway Patrol said.
The man was identified by the Fresno County Coroner's Office as Dominic Castro, 20.
Castro was driving his Chevrolet Silverado eastbound on Dinuba Avenue, east of Englehart Avenue, about 1:55 a.m. Friday when his vehicle traveled onto the dirt shoulder and collided with the rear of the Peterbilt truck trailer, the CHP said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
