A 27-year-old male died in a traffic collision Wednesday morning on Highway 152 near Lover’s Lane, while two other men sustained major injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The accident happened at 7:55 a.m. and resulted in the death of the unidentified male. Another 27-year-old male sustained major injuries along with a 31-year-old male from Fresno.
