Fatal Intersection Accident Near Modesto

I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto wrongful death attorney. A car accident occurred at a busy intersection in Modesto on Wednesday, September 20, 2017. The collision, sadly, caused a man to suffer fatal injuries.

Our sincerest thoughts and condolences are with the loved ones of the man that passed away in this devastating car accident.

What Happened?

A 45-year-old Modesto man was driving his Infiniti G35 northbound along Carver Rad in the vicinity of Briggsmore Avenue. The Infiniti was struck by an eastbound Dodge Dakota at the intersection. The impact of the collision caused the Modesto man to be pinned inside his vehicle.

Was Anybody Injured?

Emergency responders were dispatched to the scene of the car accident. Upon arrival, they located the seriously damaged Infiniti G35 carrying the Modesto man. He was extricated by emergency personnel and was stated to be alert and talking. He was transported to a hospital for treatment where he later succumbed to his injuries.

What Caused the Accident?

The Modesto Police Department Traffic Unit is handling the car accident investigation. A Traffic Collision Report is usually processed seven to ten days from the date of the accident. Authorities do not suspect that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the collision. However, officials believe that the driver of the Infiniti may have ran a red light leading up to the crash. It is important to note that not all traffic reports are accurate pertaining to fault. This may leave the loved ones of an injured or deceased party with many, unanswered questions. It is vital to contact a seasoned Modesto personal injury lawyer to study the scene of the accident and examine the sequence of events leading up to the collision to properly pinpoint liability.
