Tragic Accident Claims Life of Antonio Alcantara in Madera County

In a tragic incident in Madera County, California, a man lost his life in a six-vehicle collision last week. The victim has been identified by friends as 24-year-old Antonio Alcantara. The incident occurred on January 18 near Highway 152 and Road 9, and California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers were quick to respond.

Details of the Fatal Accident

The accident involved six vehicles and started when a white Freightliner truck tractor, loaded with wood bundles of tree stakes, was southbound on Road 9. It attempted to cross the intersection with Highway 152 after stopping at a posted stop sign. A BMW 325 was approaching the intersection from a distance at high speed, westbound on Highway 152.

Due to the high speed and low visibility, the BMW collided with the left rear trailer of the Freightliner. The impact resulted in several wood bundles being knocked onto the westbound lanes of Highway 152, creating a traffic hazard.
