The Fresno BeeJune 24, 2014 

Two people killed Tuesday evening in a big-rig crash near Dinuba have been identified.

The victims are Delfino Arroyo, 47, of Orosi, and Yolanda Anaya, 62, of Hanford, the Tulare County Coroner's Office said Wednesday.

Three vehicles were involved in the collision, the California Highway Patrol said.

About 7:15 p.m., a 2006 Kenworth tractor-trailer heading south on Road 56, southwest of Dinuba, ran a stop sign at Highway 201, the CHP said.

Driven by Jaswinder Singh, 30, of Stockton, the truck was moving about 40 to 45 mph and broadsided a 2001 Ford Expedition heading east on Highway 201.

At the same time, a 2008 Honda Pilot headed north on Road 56 had stopped at the stop sign.

The truck hit the Ford Expedition and pushed it into the Honda, the CHP said. The truck kept going, pushing the Expedition through a chain link fence and into power pole that broke, the CHP said.

Arroyo, the driver of the Ford Expedition, and Anaya, the passenger, died at the scene.

David Segovia, 65, the Honda driver, and passenger Maria Segovia, 66, suffered minor injuries and were taken to Reedley Hospital for treatment.

Singh was not hurt.

Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be a factor in the collision, the CHP said. The crash remains under investigation.
