1 Dead in Stanislaus County Accident on Crows Landing Road
STANISLAUS COUNTY, CA (August 10, 2020) – Early Saturday night, a 62-year-old man died in a Crows Landing Road crash involving Baljit Mann.
The incident occurred around 6:30 p.m. on Crows Landing Road, just north of Ehrlich Road, according to Officer Thomas Olsen, spokesman for the CHP Modesto area office.
Reports revealed that the 62-year-old Gilroy man drove south on Crows Landing in a 1998 GMC pickup towing a one-axle trailer. He came near a northbound 2015 Volvo semi hauling a refrigerated trailer filled with 30,000 pounds of lettuce.
Afterward, the GMC drove into the northbound lane and crashed with the tractor-trailer. The Volvo’s driver, 39-year-old Baljit Singh Mann of Modesto, attempted to prevent the crash. Unfortunately, he couldn’t turn in time. As a result, his truck fell off the road and stopped in a cornfield.
Olsen added that Baljitt Mann didn’t suffer injuries. However, the Gilroy man who didn’t wear his seat belt was partially thrown off from his pickup. The authorities declared him dead at the scene. At this time, his identity remains unreleased due to pending family notification.
Moreover, it’s unclear whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
“Seat belts, when worn properly, have the ability to save your life,” Olsen said.
