Modesto Woman Fatally Injured in Pedestrian Accident
I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto personal injury lawyer. An elderly pedestrian was struck by a vehicle in north Modesto on Tuesday, May 8, 2018. At approximately 2:00 pm in the afternoon, an elderly woman was reportedly crossing outside a crosswalk along Standiford Avenue in the vicinity of Tully Road. One vehicle stopped for the elderly woman to allow her to cross while a second driver of a Hyundai Sonata failed to stop in time and crashed into her. The elderly woman was evaluated at the scene and transported via ambulance to an area hospital for treatment where she later succumbed to her injuries. Officials have identified the victim as 69-year-old Terri Churchill of Modesto.
I would like to extend my condolences to the loved ones of Ms. Churchill and wish them courage during this difficult time.
