Fresno County sheriff's deputies are investigating a drive-by shooting that triggered a crash in central Fresno Monday afternoon.
Fresno police reported shots were fired around 2 p.m. at a car in a county island on Clinton Avenue and Bond Street. A white Chrysler had been hit by gunfire several times, police reported.
Police shut down Clinton Avenue from First Street to Millbrook Avenue, where a car, likely the one fleeing from the drive-by shooting, collided with another.
Senitria Sellers, 30, was the driver who was hit as she drove north at the intersection of Millbrook and Clinton avenues. The collision left car parts scattered along the westbound sidewalk on Clinton Avenue.

Sellers said she was uninsured and had just bought her car. Her aunt, who was riding with Sellers, was taken by ambulance to the hospital for an injury to her leg.
A damaged and abandoned car was being picked up by a tow truck at the corner of Cedar Avenue and Arden Drive. Sheriff’s Lt. Brandon Pursell couldn't confirm if that vehicle belonged to the suspects in the shooting or crash.
Pursell said the investigation did involve a stolen vehicle. There was no immediate information on suspects involved in Monday’s incidents.
Pursell said nobody was injured in the shooting.
