Elvira Zuniga Valencia has been identified by authorities as the victim in a truck collision that occurred on July 30 in Madera County. Ms. Valencia, an 82-year-old Los Banos resident, was a passenger in a GMC SUV being driven by 59-year-old Maria Barajas-Gonzalez, also of Los Banos. The GMC stopped at a stop sign at the corner of Road 28 ½ and Oregon Avenue prior to 11:45 a.m. It reportedly then entered the intersection where it was hit by a Peterbilt semi driven by Caleb Jeremiah Vogel, a 26-year-old Mariposa resident. The force of the crash killed the elderly woman. The tragic accident remains under investigation.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the victim during this difficult time.
