Driver Dies after Plunging into Canal

A 68-year-old pickup driver, from Atwater, met a watery death after his pickup struck a concrete canal bank and plunged into a canal, which was full of water.

According to reports, the man was traveling northbound on Shaffer Road along north of Palm Avenue in Fresno when the accident occurred.

The driver would have been alive today if he did not try to overtake a big rig driven by Francisco Ochoa, 40, also from Atwater.

The man reportedly moved towards the southbound lane in an effort to overtake the big rig. When he noticed that a number of vehicles were approaching, he decided to return to his original lane.

However, the vehicle’s rear clipped the big-rig’s front, which caused it to spin out of control.

The driver was airlifted to a hospital in Modesto where he was pronounced dead.

He is the sole occupant of the pickup when the accident took place.
