2 killed, 1 airlifted after crash in front of Tachi Palace, CHP says

LEMOORE, Calif. (KFSN) — Two men were killed in a crash in front of the Tachi Palace Casino Resort late Friday night.

The California Highway Patrol says it happened on Jersey Avenue west of 17th Avenue just before midnight.

Officers say 26-year-old Santana Yanez of Lemoore was driving east on Jersey at a high rate of speed when a 63-year-old man driving a Nissan left the resort. The man pulled into Yanez’s driveway and fell onto the driver’s side.

The two men in the Nissan were pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers arrested Yanez for DUI and he was airlifted to Kaweah Health Medical Center with serious injuries.

The two men have not been identified. They were both from Fresno.

ONE GoFundMe has been created for the family of the driver who was killed.
