(Fresno, CA) In a recent incident at the intersection of McKinley Avenue and Fresno Street, an officer was hospitalized following a collision with an alleged DUI driver. The Fresno Police Department was in pursuit of the driver around 7 p.m., with assistance from a California Highway Patrol officer.
