Male Pedestrian Pronounced Dead after Fatal Crash near Cherokee Road

AUGUST, CA (May 23, 2024) – Early Friday morning, one man was fatally struck in a big-rig vs pedestrian collision on Highway 99. 

Around 4:46 p.m., first responders arrived to the southbound lanes of the freeway near Cherokee Road.

According to reports, the driver of a 2015 Peterbilt semi-truck towing a trailer hit the pedestrian walking in the roadway.
