Car Crashes Into Modesto Bee Office

Hi, I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto Auto Accident Attorney. In the early hours of Sunday morning, a car carrying at least two passengers crashed into the Modesto Bee newspaper office in downtown Modesto, shattering multiple glass panels and the front doors. Crews were seen making repairs to the office Sunday afternoon.

What Happened?

Around 9:20 a.m on Sunday morning a blue four-door sedan crashed into the front entrance of the Modesto Bee office at 14th and H Street in downtown Modesto. The cause of the accident is not currently known. The roads were very slick on Sunday morning due to the recent storm systems that went through the area.

Were There Injuries?

Both of the occupants in the blue sedan suffered minor injuries in the collision and were transported by ambulance to an area hospital and were treated for their injuries.

Rainy Weather Driving Tips:

It’s that time of year when the roads tend to be more slick than usual. Take a couple of minutes and read the wet weather driving tips below to refresh your memory for winter driving.

  • Check your tires for adequate tire tread, proper inflation levels and visually inspect all of the tires to make sure they are free from cracks or items imbedded into the tread.
  • Replace your windshield wipers.
  • Check all of your vehicles exterior lights such as: brake lights, blinkers, head lights and fog lights. Most states require by law to use your headlights anytime your windshield wipers are needed in the rain.
  • You are more likely to loose traction in rainy weather. When the roadways are wet there is less friction between the road and your tires. Keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you, when the roads are slick you have a higher chance of sliding into the vehicle in front of you
