STRATHMORE – Two Strathmore residents were recently involved in a fatal car accident after a driver failed to hit the brakes for a stop sign at an intersection.

On Feb. 21 around 6:50 p.m., Fresno Communication Center received calls of a two vehicle crash in the area of Road 180 and Avenue 208. Officers from the California Highway Patrol Porterville Area office responded to the scene.

A preliminary investigation indicates June Fisher, 67, of Strathmore was driving a Ram 3500 southbound on Road 180, approaching the intersection with Avenue 208, at an unknown speed. At the same time, a 40-year-old male of Strathmore was driving a 2006 Nissan Maxima eastbound on Avenue 208 approaching the intersection with Road 180 at an unknown speed.

The Ram overturned and came to rest in the dirt field.

The driver of the Nissan was pronounced deceased on scene. The driver of the Ram sustained minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital.
