Man Dead in Modesto Two-Car Accident

 
MODESTO, CA (March 3, 2019) – One person died in a two-car crash on Highway 99 caused by rainy weather condition on Saturday, March 2.
 
California Highway Patrol said that at around 8:40 a.m., a Toyota Prius driven by a 27-year-old man from Ceres, reported only as A. Morfin, was moving north in the last lane of Highway 99 near Hatch Road. At the meantime, a Chevrolet Silverado driven by a 41-year-old man from Turlock was traveling northbound in the middle lane.
 
Morfin was driving at about 60 mph when he turned his vehicle to the right after driving through standing water on the freeway. CHP reported that the turn caused the right front of his car to strike the left rear of the Silverado.
 
The pickup truck traveled to the right after the crash and then rotated clockwise. After that, it hit a raised curb and rolled over through a chain-link fence. It came to a stop in an open field.
 
The driver of the Silverado sustained fatal injuries as a result of the collision. His name is not yet released pending family notification.
 
Morfin and his 25-year-old male passenger, identified only as K. Valdez of Ceres, were not hurt in the incident.
 
CHP said that alcohol and drugs are not believed to be factors in this collision. No one was arrested on the scene.
