Police say the area was crowded with people when it happened, and it doesn't look like the driver was speeding.

The driver of the SUV, however, was ticketed for driving without a license.

Familiar Face Takes Reins Of Clovis Fire Department

Familiar Face Takes Reins Of Clovis Fire Department

Clovis firefighters have a new leader, and he's no stranger to the department.

Lee Kraft has been with the Clovis Fire Department since 1981. Little did he know back then, he'd one day rise through the ranks to become Clovis' fire chief.

Unlike many firefighters today, Kraft never dreamed of rushing into burning buildings to save lives when he was a little boy.

"I was a drafting design major at Fresno State, and I was two months away from signing a contract with Hughes Aircraft down in El Segundo as a draftsperson," Kraft said.

Instead, he saw an ad for reserve firefighters and decided public service was his true calling.

"You think you're going down this path, you take a hard left, and it's an opportunity and you seize the moment," Kraft said.
