A Fresno man is dead after running a stop sign in Clovis and hitting a power pole on Friday night, said the California Highway Patrol.
The 27-year-old was driving a 1999 Honda west on Nees Avenue around 7 p.m. when he ran the four-way stop at the Armstrong Avenue intersection. He veered northwest, hitting a power pole and was partially thrown out of the driver’s side window, said the CHP. He was not wearing a seatbelt.
On Monday the Fresno County cororner identified the man as Nicholas Segura, 27.
The Clovis Police Department tweeted that the intersection was closed for up to 15 hours while the CHP investigated. It is not known if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
