Modesto Accident Fatally Injures Elderly Woman

An elderly woman passed away on the morning of February 11 after being struck by an oncoming vehicle in north Modesto. The incident occurred along Standiford Avenue in the vicinity of Polaris Street at around 9:00 in the morning. An elderly woman driving a Chevrolet Malibu pulled her vehicle over to the right side of the road. For unknown reasons, the woman exited her car and was standing next to her open driver’s side door. One vehicle approaching the Chevrolet was able to move over in time to avoid a collision. A second car, identified as a Nissan Rogue, was unable to stop and collided with the elderly pedestrian. Sadly, the woman succumbed to her injuries at the scene. Officials have identified the decedent as 76-year-old Paula Matos of Modesto. I would like to send my thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Ms. Matos while they are grieving their tragic loss.

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.
