A Modesto triple fatality accident recently occurred along Highway 99, just north of Pelandale Avenue. A driver of a GMC Yukon was traveling northbound along the southbound lanes of Highway 99 when their vehicle sideswiped another car. The wrong way driver continued for a short time before striking a Chevrolet Tahoe head-on. Sadly, the Chevrolet driver and two occupants of the GMC succumbed to their injuries at the scene. Officials have identified the Chevrolet driver as 24-year-old Terilyn Peralta of Salida and the GMC motorist as 32-year-old Marques A. Rodriguez of Manteca.
We would like to extend our sincere thoughts and sympathy to the loved ones of Ms. Peralta and Mr. Rodriguez during this difficult time.
