Five farm workers heading to the fields died when their sports car sped through a stop sign at a rural San Joaquin Valley intersection and was struck broadside by a sedan. The dead, four women and a man who was driving the sports car, were all from nearby Fresno. The bodies of the four women, who ranged in age from 16 to 30, were found next to a utility company building on which some barely legible graffiti was written: "As we trudge the road of happy destiny." Two men in the other car suffered moderate injuries. It was the second rural crash with a high number of fatalities in less than a month. On Labor Day, seven people died in a head-on collision near the line between Kings and Tulare counties, about 25 miles south of the latest accident.
