Big Rig Hit and Killed a Man Near Jensen Avenue

FRESNO, CA (August 22, 2023) – Monday afternoon, a man died in a bicycle-truck collision on Cedar Avenue, south of Fresno. Reports of the incident arrived around 12:30 p.m. on Cedar Avenue, near Jesen Avenue and Calwa Elementary School. According to the police, a man on a mountain bike turned left from the sidewalk into the path of a 2017 Kenworth truck. The cyclist then collided with the trailer’s rear axles, leading the truck’s right side tires to run over them. Unfortunately, the man on a bicycle sustained heavy injuries and died at the scene. The California Highway Patrol only identified the bicyclist as a 35-year-old man. Meanwhile, the big rig driver stayed at the site of the incident and cooperated with the investigators. Officers also notified the nearby school about the crash and made sure no students were exposed to the incident. In the end, authorities closed down Cedar Avenue, between Jesend and Kaviland avenues as crews cleared the scene.
