The coroner has identified the 18-year-old woman who was killed in a two-vehicle collision on Saturday afternoon.
Kindra McAfee died following the crash that occurred around 4:20 p.m. on October 8th.
According to reports, the two vehicles collided at Jensen Avenue, just west of Sycamore Avenue.
McAfee was heading westbound in a Toyota Camry when she made a U-turn in front of an eastbound Jeep Grand Cherokee.
As a result, the Camry struck the driver’s side of the Jeep.
Four occupants of the Jeep sustained minor to major injuries and were transported to Fresno Community Regional Medical Center.

U-turns are basically left turns which account for nearly a quarter of all vehicle crashes according to NHTSA.
In addition, those who are making the u-turn are often the person at fault. This is because those who initiate a U-turn must allow for enough time to make sure they don’t impact the flow of traffic from the opposite direction.
Tips for after accident procedures:
- Always stop at the scene
- Call 911 if there are any injuries
- Get vehicle to safety if it is moveable, if it is not, put on hazards
- Exchange information with others involved and document everything
- Call 911 to report accident – they determine who was at fault
