21-Year-Old Caruthers Man Pronounced Dead after SUV vs Semi-Truck Collision near Lincoln Avenue

FRESNO COUNTY, CA (April 2, 2024) – Friday morning, Mario Calderas was killed in a stop-sign big-rig accident on Marks Avenue.

The incident occurred around 7:30 a.m., near Lincoln Avenue just west of Easton.

Officers say the driver of a Toyota SUV failed to stop at a posted stop sign at the intersection. As a result, the Toyota struck a commercial big-rig, ejecting the Toyota driver onto the road.

Upon impact, the semi-truck veered into a canal and caught fire.

First responders declared the Toyota driver dead at the scene. The Fresno County Coroner’s Office later identified the deceased driver as 21-year-old Mario Calderas, of Caruthers.

Meanwhile, the truck driver sustained minor injuries.
