Man Killed in Visalia Crash on Highway 65

Visalia, California (February 11, 2023) – A 43-year-old man was killed in a Visalia crash on Saturday evening, authorities said.

The deadly accident happened at about 6:00 p.m., on February 4, on Highway 65, north of Avenue 244.

According to the California Highway Patrol, a 2002 Honda, driven by a 43-year-old man, was driving southbound on Highway 65 while Benito Morales, 30, was driving a 2016 Kia northbound on Highway 65, approaching the Honda from the opposite direction. 

Unfortunately, the Honda reportedly veered to the left and across the center line, directly into the path of Morales’ vehicle.

Following the collision, the Honda came to rest on the southbound lane of Highway 65. The Kia’s engine became dislodged, causing all lighting to go out on the vehicle as it came to rest in the northbound lane.

Sadly, the 43-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Morales was transported to Kaweah Health Medical Center with major injuries. He was also arrested for suspicion of DUI and released to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.
