MADERA COUNTY, CA (May 22, 2024) – Saturday night, an 11-year-old girl was killed in a 3-car crash on Highway 41 just south of Road 406. The incident occurred at approximately 5:38 p.m., at Jewel Vista Court. Per reports, the driver of a southbound white GMC Yukon veered west off the side of the road. The Yukon then collided with a large boulder and veered back into the path of a silver Chevrolet Silverado. Subsequently, a white Buick Enclave rear-ended the Silverado. Despite life-saving efforts of good Samaritans in the area, the 11-year-old girl occupying the left-rear seat of the Yukon died from her injuries.
