I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto car accident lawyer. A head-on collision occurred in Knights Ferry on the morning of Thursday, January 18, 2018. Sadly, the accident caused one party to suffer traumatic injuries and another party to suffer fatal injuries.

In response to this tragedy, we would like to send our condolences to the friends and family of Mr. Moore who passed away and our hopes for a complete recovery to the individual who was injured.

A Patterson man was driving his 2015 Dodge flatbed truck eastbound along Highway 108 in the vicinity of Kennedy Road at approximately 8:30 am.

Officials from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that the impact of the collision allegedly sheared the Infiniti in half.
