A Fresno man killed Friday night in a collision at a Madera County intersection was identified as Malcolm Paul Harvey, 26.
The California Highway Patrol said Harvey was killed as he was driving a 2005 Infinity G35 eastbound on Avenue 15 when he reached the four-way stop at Road 36 about 9:43 p.m. Friday. He stopped then proceeded.
The driver of a 2005 Honda CR-V, identified by the CHP as Noah Louis Whitney, 22, of Fresno, entered the intersection on Road 36 at a “high rate of speed,” CHP said, and broadsided the Infinity on the driver’s side. Both vehicles ended up in a ditch.
Harvey died at the scene. Whitney and his passenger, Courtney Wachter, 21, of Madera were both taken to Community Regional Medical Center with moderate to major injuries.
