Lionel Lopez, of the Shafter Police Department, gave a brief statement at the scene.

At approximately 5:30 p.m., the Shafter Police Department responded to a report of an accident at the intersection. There were two vehicles involved. Shafter Police Department's Lionel Lopez said a 2007 Chrysler Aspen was traveling west on Fresno Avenue approaching Central Valley Highway. Meanwhile, a 2009 BMW 328i was traveling south on Central Valley Highway when the two vehicles crashed at the intersection.

All three occupants of the two vehicles were killed as a result. One person was killed at the scene, while the other two victims succumbed to their injuries later.

Highway 43 was closed while the scene was cleaned up.

Lopez said it is early in the investigation, however it does not look like alcohol played a part. The investigation is ongoing.
