A seven-vehicle collision Sunday afternoon on Interstate 5 west of Newman killed a 72-year-old man.
The Stanislaus County Coroner's Office on Monday identified the crash victim as Glenn Coutts of Jacksonville, Oregon.
Three people, from Clovis and San Francisco, suffered minor injuries. The five other people involved were uninjured, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The crash occurred about 5:50 p.m. on northbound I-5 south of the Orestimba Road undercrossing, the CHP said.
Never miss a local story.
Six drivers had come to a stop in the No. 1 lane of I-5 because of heavy traffic. Coutts, alone in a 2013 Toyota, was last in line.
Camarillo resident Orin Jay Cassellius, 53, approached the stopped traffic at an unsafe speed for the conditions, the CHP reported, and struck the rear of Coutts' car. Cassellius, driving a 2001 Ford and wearing a safety belt, was among the uninjured.
Coutts, who according to the CHP was not buckled in, was airlifted to Doctors Medical Center, where he died.
Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash, the CHP said.
Others hurt in the crash were Clovis residents Roberta Lynn Andriese, 41, and Samantha Andriese, 20, who were in a 2013 GMC and complained of back, abdomen, leg and arm pain; and San Francisco resident Bryan Lynn Anderson, 24, who was in a 2017 Honda and complained of head, neck and back pain.
Those not hurt were Tulare resident Garrett Jon Miller, 34, in a 2017 Chevrolet; Eureka resident Kurt Douglas Nelson, 64, in a 2012 Nissan; and Benicia resident Danny Homer Colomb, 59, and Martinez resident Terry McDonald, 59, both in a 2015 Chevrolet.
