Man Pruning Tree at Newman Home Dies when Driver Swerves to Avoid Hitting Cat

 
NEWMAN, CA (October 25, 2019) – A man pruning a tree at a Newman home died in a pedestrian crash Friday morning.
 
The crash happened around 7:45 a.m. on Eastin Road just south of Shiells Road.
 
According to California Highway Patrol, a 33-year-old Francis Coronado of Gustine was driving a GMC Yukon with his two children in the backseat. He was traveling at about 65 mph north on Eastin Road when a cat ran out of an orchard and into his path.
 
Coronado swerved to the left to avoid hitting the cat. He continued in a northwesterly direction toward the home, where a 48-year-old Cornelio Cornejo of Los Banos was on a ladder pruning a tree.
 
The Yukon went up a raised berm surrounding the property and became airborne. It flew several feet above a 4-foot fence and struck the tree Cornejo was pruning.
 
The tree broke apart from the impact and knocked Cornejo off the top of the ladder.
 
First responders began CPR on Cornejo and a medical helicopter was dispatched to the scene. Cornejo was taken by ambulance to the helicopter landing zone on Shiells Road, where he was pronounced dead.
 
Investigation is ongoing.


No words can mend the broken hearts and sorrow felt during this delicate moment. Our deepest condolences are with the family and friends of Cornelio Cornejo.
