Joe Faz Killed in Fresno County 3-Vehicle Crash Involving Big Rig

Fresno, California – Authorities have identified Joe Faz, 68, of Sanger as the man who died following a Fresno County 3-vehicle crash that took place on Wednesday afternoon.

The fatal collision happened at about 1:40 p.m., Wednesday, at the intersection of Highway 180 and Chateau Fresno.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the first vehicle was westbound on Highway 180 and was slowing down to turn on Chateau Fresno. The driver of a westbound big rig, also on Highway 180, did not see the vehicle slowing and veered to the left, right into the path of an eastbound vehicle leading to the collision.

CHP officers said Faz was a passenger in the vehicle that was eastbound and was killed in the crash. The driver sustained major injuries and was taken to Community Regional Medical Center.

Alcohol and drugs were not believed to have played any role in the accident.

The crash remains under investigation.

We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
