Accident Fatally Injures Gustine Man

Accident Fatally Injures Gustine Man

Accident Fatally Injures Gustine Man — A head-on collision in Merced County claimed the life of a Gustine man on September 7, 2018. The accident occurred at approximately 8:30 in the morning along Highway 33 near Gun Club Road just south of Gustine. A driver of a 2013 Ford pickup truck was traveling southbound along the highway when a northbound 2005 Toyota Tacoma entered the southbound lane to overtake a 2009 Volvo big rig. According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the Ford driver veered to the left to avoid a collision with the oncoming Toyota but, unfortunately, collided head-on with the tractor-trailer. The impact of the crash caused the Ford driver to be ejected out of the vehicle while the big rig continued off the roadway and came to a rest on its side after shearing off a power pole in the area. Sadly, the Ford driver succumbed to his injuries at the scene. The victim has been identified by the Merced County Sheriff’s Office as 34-year-old John Moitozo of Gustine.

My sincere thoughts and condolences are with those mourning the loss of their loved one during this difficult time.

I’m Ed Smith, a Merced wrongful death lawyer. A single-vehicle accident claimed the life of a Woodlake man near Snelling in Merced County on July 31, 2018. A Tulare man was driving his Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck southbound along La Grange Road in the vicinity of State Route 59 at approximately 5:04 p.m. For unknown reasons, the Chevrolet driver lost control of his vehicle after reportedly failing to navigate a right-hand curve in the road and veered into the northbound lane. The Chevrolet motorist then attempted to correct his truck by turning sharply to the right; however, his efforts were unsuccessful. The Chevrolet traveled down an embankment, rolled over multiple times and struck several trees in the area. Unfortunately, a passenger of the Chevrolet succumbed to his injuries at the scene. Authorities have identified the victim as 59-year-old Ampelio Contreras of Woodlake.

Our sincere thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones of Mr. Contreras who lost his life in this devastating accident.
