Two people died Wednesday in a fiery crash near Central and Del Rey avenues north of Del Rey. A third person was saved from the burning SUV by a passing driver who stopped to help.
California Highway Patrol spokesman Victor Taylor said a Ford SUV was traveling northbound on Del Rey around 3:45 p.m. when it was broadsided by a sedan traveling eastbound on Central. The SUV rolled several times and caught on fire.
The driver of the sedan, a Parlier woman, was killed in the crash, Taylor said. The good Samaritan was able to pull out the driver of the SUV, a Dinuba woman, but could not get the passenger, another Dinuba woman out in time.
