Joan Rubalcava Died In Fatal Auto Accident On Highway 99

Posted by Renée Yvonne Gardner | Feb 24, 2022

JOAN RUBALCAVA OF FRESNO, 51 YEARS OLD, DIED AFTER HIGHWAY 99 HEAD ON ACCIDENT

Authorities report that yesterday at around 7:41 PM, a 2006 Nissan Titan driven Billy Cole, 22 years old, of Red Bluff, California, drove north on Highway 99, north of Le Grand Road (Exit 179).

For unknown reasons, Cole lost control and crossed over center median. He entered the opposing lane of traffic, causing a person to be ejected from their car.

Cole crashed head-on into a 2017 Honda Pilot driven by Joan Ruvalcaba. She was travelling in southbound lane number one of Highway 99.

Tragically, Joan Ruvalcaba was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities report that the impact caused at least one of the involved vehicles to crash with a 2019 Chevrolet Malibu.

The Malibu was driven by Carla Benavides, 41 years old, of Chowchilla, who was traveling in the southbound lane number two of Highway 99.

Benavides was rushed to Mercy Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

My heart goes out to the family of Joan Ruvalcaba of Fresno, who lost her life in this tragic accident. The wrongdoer in this case must be brought to justice.
