Cedric Gonzalez Fatally Injured In Fresno County Crash With Truck

Cedric Gonzalez killed in a collision with a semi on Highway 41 in Fresno County.

Fresno County, CA (May 15, 2024) A tragic accident sent a wave of sadness through the community of Fresno County on Thursday, May 9th. 21-year-old Cedric Gonzalez, a Fresno resident, was killed when his vehicle collided with a semi-truck carrying a load of grapefruit. The sad incident happened on Highway 41 in the evening hours of the day, according to police reports.

21-year-old Cedric Gonzalez was north on Highway 41 in a Nissan. A semi-truck hauling grapefruit was coming from South Avenue and merged onto northbound Highway 41, right in the path of Gonzalez. The semi-truck ended up blocking the lane as it slowly tried to pick up speed on the highway. Gonzalez had no time to react and ended up slamming into the back of the semi-truck trailer. The Nissan became stuck under the trailer, reports indicated. The truck driver, realizing something had happened, pulled over with Gonzalez’s Nissan still pinned under its trailer.
