One person died this morning when a big rig and a SUV crashed on northbound Highway 99 south of Fresno, the California Highway Patrol said.
The accident, reported at 10:37 a.m., happened just south of Clovis Avenue.
Less than an hour later, a few miles south on Highway 99, traffic slowed in northbound lanes after a big rig jackknifed off the right shoulder and hit a fence just north of Manning Avenue, the CHP said.
That accident was reported at 11:30 a.m.
Traffic appears to be flowing in both areas of the highway, the CHP said.
