Mother and Daughter Killed after Colliding with Big Rig

Drivers should be careful when traveling, especially when there are children inside the vehicle.

A 46-year-old mother and her 13-yeard old daughter, both from Fresno, died after the Toyota sedan they were riding in crashed into a big rig in Central Fresno.

Reports stated that Youa Yang died in the accident. Meanwhile, her daughter Linda Xiong was brought to Community Regional Medical Center, where she was announced dead after almost two hours.

The car driver was also rushed to the hospital. The person’s condition remains unknown.

According to reports, the three were traveling southbound on Golden State Boulevard before it turned left into Olive Avenue and smashed into a northbound Producers Dairy big rig.

Police said the big rig driver fortunately escaped from injuries.

In this case, the driver may be held liable for Yang and Xiong’s death if it was determined that he or she performed a negligent driving action, which resulted in the accident.
