Fresno pair identified as motorcyclists killed in crash

Two people killed in a motorcycle crash in southeast Fresno on Friday have been identified as Refugio Cedillo, 45, and Tanya Shaw, 42, both of Fresno.

Fresno police said the pair, with Cedillo driving, were riding east on Tulare near Willow about 3:51 p.m. when they collided with a westbound SUV as it made a left turn onto Willow in front of the motorcycle.

The motorcycle and SUV then hit another SUV that had stopped on Willow for a traffic light. The SUVs involved were a GMC Envoy and Nissan Pathfinder, police said.

The 34-year-old woman driving the first SUV was not hurt, nor was she under the influence of drugs or alcohol, police said. Toxicology results are pending for Cedillo and Shaw.

Police said no one was hurt in the other SUV.

The Fresno Police Department Collision Reconstruction Unit was investigating.
