Lodi Single Vehicle Accident Fatality
A Lodi single vehicle accident fatality occurred on January 2 along Highway 99 just south of the exit for Kettleman Lane. A driver of a 2000 Honda Accord was traveling northbound along the highway when, for unknown reasons, he lost control of the vehicle. A preliminary report by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) suggested the Honda driver allegedly made an unsafe turning movement to the right, veered off the roadway and struck a fence and tree limb. The Honda later came to a rest after overturning into a vineyard. One passenger of the Honda was reportedly ejected from the car and suffered moderate injuries. Sadly, the driver succumbed to his injuries at the scene. Officials have identified the victim as 20-year-old Giovany Camacho of Turlock.
