Fatal Pedestrian Hit-and-Run Collision Modesto


Fatal Pedestrian Hit-and-Run Collision Modesto

I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto personal injury lawyer. Two pedestrians were walking in east Modesto when a motorist crashed into them during the evening hours of Monday, March 13, 2017. Unfortunately, the pedestrian accident caused one victim to suffer major injuries and one victim to suffer fatal injuries.

What Happened?

A woman was pushing a motorcycle out of a field onto Frazine Road in the vicinity of Yosemite Boulevard, east of Johansen High School. For unknown reasons, an unidentified vehicle crashed into the woman. The driver of the vehicle allegedly left the scene moments after the collision.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) received reports of a pedestrian accident at about 8:20 pm. When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered the injured woman and another injured pedestrian. The second injured pedestrian was a Modesto man. It is unclear whether the man was walking by himself or with the woman pushing the motorcycle.

The 53-year-old Modesto man suffered traumatic injuries as a result of the pedestrian accident. The woman that was pushing the motorcycle was identified as 34-year-old Tami Qualls from Empire. Unfortunately, Qualls passed away due to the grave nature of her injuries.

We extend our condolences to the loved ones of the woman who lost her life in this tragic way.

What Caused the Pedestrian Accident?

It is still too soon to determine what caused the pedestrian accident. It generally takes authorities up to two weeks to prepare a Traffic Collision Report. Sometimes traffic collision reports contain errors as to fault. If you have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, please contact an experienced personal injury attorney right away.
