Accident Fatally Injures Oakdale Woman
A head-on collision north of Don Pedro Reservoir claimed the life of an Oakdale woman on the night of January 31, 2019. The auto accident occurred shortly after 6:00 p.m. along Highway 120 just west of Sims Road. A 37-year-old Modesto woman was driving eastbound along the highway in a Ford Explorer with an infant in the back seat. The woman approached a curve in the road and crossed into the oncoming traffic lane in the direct path of a Toyota Prius. The two vehicles then collided head-on. The Ford driver suffered minor injuries, and the infant was uninjured in the accident. Sadly, the Toyota driver succumbed to her injuries at the scene. Officials have identified the decedent as 55-year-old Guillermina Goff of Oakdale. My prayers and sympathy are with the friends and family of Ms. Goff in their time of loss and sorrow.
