2 Calif. Highway Patrol Officers Killed In Crash

Posted: Updated:
KINGSBURG, Calif. (AP) - The California Highway Patrol says two officers have been killed in an early morning accident in Fresno County.
    
CHP Capt. Dave Paris says the officers were killed while responding to a call of a multi-vehicle accident on Highway 99 in the Central Valley town of Kingsburg at around 6 a.m. Monday.
    
Paris says the officers initially were driving southbound to the accident that had been reported on the northbound portion of Highway 99. They discovered that the collision was actually on the southbound part of the highway and that one the persons involved was on the road.
    
The two male officers tried to swerve out of the way, lost control of their vehicle and slammed into a guardrail. They died after their vehicle overturned.
    
Their names have not been released.
    
Paris says accident reconstruction teams are on the scene to investigate the incident.
