FRESNO, Calif. (Feb. 5, 2019) — Phia Vang, 48, a 26-year veteran of the Police Department, died in a crash with a wrong-way driver Monday night on Highway 180.

Update: Cameron Pryor, 33, of Fresno, ID’d as suspected wrong-way driver. 

The crash took place about 5 p.m. shortly after a driver in a 2014 Chevy Silverado pickup truck turned from DeWolf Avenue onto Highway 180. The wrong-way driver entered the freeway driving eastbound in the westbound lanes where he collided with a total of six vehicles, the last was driven by Vang which he struck head-on.
