Woman Killed Following Modesto Pedestrian Accident
Woman Killed Following Modesto Pedestrian Accident. A woman was left with fatal injuries following a pedestrian accident in Modesto on August 25, 2018. At approximately 8:30 in the evening, a man and woman were standing together in the median of Pelandale Avenue. At the same time, a Ceres resident in a 2016 Honda Civic was traveling westbound along Pelandale Avenue when the man reportedly crossed the street followed by the woman. The Honda driver attempted to veer to the left to avoid striking the man but, unfortunately, crashed into the woman. The impact of the collision propelled the woman over 100 feet before she landed on the asphalt. Emergency personnel responding to the accident transported the woman to an area hospital where she was later pronounced deceased. The Stanislaus County Coroner’s Office has identified the victim as 38-year-old Cami Joan Pernia of Modesto.
