Guillermina Goff Killed, Cinthia Beglinger Hurt in Head-On Crash on Highway 120 Near Sims Road
CHINESE CAMP, CA (February 4, 2019)– An Oakdale woman was killed Thursday night in a head-on collision on Highway 120 near Sims Road.
The 6:15 p.m. crash happened just north of the Don Pedro Reservoir. Guillermina Goff, 55, was operating a Toyota Prius westbound on the highway, approaching a curve in the road, while 37-year-old Cinthia Beglinger, of Modesto, was heading east in a Ford Explorer with a 10-month-old child in the rear seat.
For unknown reasons, Beglinger failed to negotiate the right curve and crossed into the oncoming traffic lanes, directly into the path of the Toyota. Both cars collided head-on and although everyone was properly restrained, Goff was killed in the crash and Beglinger sustained minor injuries. The child escaped the crash uninjured, according to reports.
Authorities are investigating this crash to learn what had happened. Impairment does not appear to be a contributing source to the incident.
