A 77-year-old Fresno woman is dead after a crash in Fresno County on July 9, the California Highway Patrol announced Wednesday.
The crash happened at 5:49 p.m. at the intersection of Central and Temperance avenues.
Amalia Hunter, 54, of Fresno and the 77-year-old woman, Dolores Alanis, a passenger in Hunter’s 2013 Nissan, were northbound on Temperance Avenue and stopped at the stop sign at Central Avenue. CHP said traffic on Central Avenue has no stop signs at that intersection.
Jose Soto, 44, of Fresno was driving south on Temperance Avenue and stopped at the intersection to wait for traffic on Central Avenue to clear.
CHP said Hunter apparently didn’t see the westbound 1995 Chevrolet driven by Jesus Puentes, 40, of Fresno. Puentes’ vehicle struck the rear passenger door of Hunter’s vehicle causing it to spin and collide with Soto’s 2004 Toyota.
Alanis died at a local hospital, the CHP said. Hunter complained only of minor pain, and Puentes and Soto were uninjured.
The cause of the crash is under investigation, but drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor, CHP said.
