The CHP says 34-year-old Officer Brian Law of Clovis and 33-year-old Officer Juan Gonzalez of Fresno were responding to a multi-vehicle crash early Monday when they swerved to avoid a person in the road and lost control of the vehicle.

CHP spokesman Axel Reyes says Gonzalez, who was driving, swerved and the squad car hit a guardrail and struck the pylon of a freeway exit sign.

The two officers graduated from the CHP academy in 2008. They are the first officers from the Fresno CHP office to die in the line of duty since 1962.
