Earlimart, CA – Fatal Pedestrian Accident Involving Bus on Highway 99

Earlimart, CA (March 11, 2019) – Last night, March 10th, police say that a fatal pedestrian accident took place on Highway 99 involving a Greyhound bus in Tulare County.

The crash happened around 9:00 p.m. last night, according to the California Highway Patrol. The bus had been traveling northbound at the time of the accident. The bus driver, who stayed at the scene and spoke with police, told authorities that he was merging into a lane when he struck the male pedestrian who walked from the median into the roadway.

When police and paramedics arrived at the scene, the pedestrian was already deceased. There were 23 people on the Greyhound bus at the time, none of whom were injured.

The driver allegedly never saw the unidentified victim before the accident and is now working with authorities.

Police continue their investigation of the accident at this time.
