A four-car crash killed one and injured four others, including Fresno State forward Braeden Anderson, on the night of Tuesday, September 3rd. The crash occurred after a driver lost control of his vehicle, starting a chain reaction collision.

The crash happened around 9:45 p.m. on Millerton Road near Table Mountain Casino in Friant. The driver of a 1997 Honda, identified as Adam Esqueda, 18, lost control of his vehicle and drove onto the right shoulder. He over-corrected and drove into oncoming traffic, striking a 2000 Honda driven by Moeun Bour, 70, and then into a 2011 Dodge, driven by Kyle Jackson, a walk-on basketball player at Fresno State. After the initial collision, Bour’s vehicle collided with a 1990 Acura driven by Paul Funderburg, 25.

A passenger in the 2000 Honda, Norman Tes, 26, was killed in the crash. Anderson was a passenger in the 2011 Dodge. Anderson, Bour, and one other victim were taken to Community Regional Medical Center with moderate injuries. Another passenger in the 2011 Dodge, Alexander Wilson, 21, of Kingsburg, sustained minor injury but declined treatment. Jackson did not suffer any serious injury.

Tuesday night’s crash is under investigation, but authorities do not believe that alcohol, drugs, or speeding were a factor in the accident.
