Fatal Modesto Collision

I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto auto accident lawyer. A man passed away as a result of injuries he sustained in a tragic motor vehicle collision in Modesto.

What Happened?

  • Modesto Police Department investigated a motor vehicle accident that left one man dead and two others injured on Monday night.
  • The crash occurred about 5:30 p.m. Monday evening along Crows Landing Road in the vicinity of Algen Avenue.
  • Authorities indicated a black Sport Utility Vehicle traveling southbound along Crows Landing broadsided a red sedan that was pulling out of a parking lot.
  • Modesto Police Department said the person behind the wheel of the Sport Utility Vehicle had been observed driving recklessly just prior to the crash.

Crash Fatally Injures Driver in Red Sedan

Sadly, the man driving the red sedan was fatally injured as a result of the collision.

The driver of the Sport Utility Vehicle was injured along with a passenger riding in the red sedan. Both were transported to the hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the crash.

What Caused the Modesto Traffic Fatality?

The driver of the sport utility vehicle was allegedly driving recklessly in the moments leading up to the crash.

It generally takes investigators five to ten days to prepare a report of their findings and make the report available to the parties.

When one of the driver’s involved in a crash passes away, it may be more difficult to obtain both versions for the events leading up to the crash.

It is important to have an experienced auto accident attorney assisting in the investigation process to protect the rights of those who are seriously injured or have passed away.
