According to The Fresno Bee and FOX 26 News, the accident took place on Saturday evening. Officers reported the wreck at around 6:55 p.m.

The incident began when a Tacos El Bello food truck was parked near the intersection of Maple and Belmont avenues in Fresno. A man in his 50s was eating at a table near the food truck at the time.
