A 25-year-old man died early Monday after he drove his truck into oncoming traffic and collided with two other vehicles in Lindsay.
Police said the traffic accident happened at 5 a.m. near Highway 65 and Fresno Street and involved eight people who were all transported to Kaweah Delta Medical Center for treatment. The 25-year-old, whose identity has not been released, was driving south on the two-lane road in a full-size pickup truck when he crossed into the northbound lane, sideswiped a minivan with six passengers and struck a smaller sized pickup.
The man was died at the hospital. Authorities are investigating whether he was impaired or not during the accident.
The 19-year-old driver of the smaller pickup was listed in stable condition Monday evening. Passengers in the minivan sustained critical and minor injuries, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Lindsay police Sgt. Andrew Robinson at (559) 562-2511.
