Alejandro Contreras Involved in Modesto Collision
Modesto, CA (August 31, 2022) – On Tuesday night, Michael Lowery, 23, of Modesto, sustained head injuries in a motorcycle crash on Salida Boulevard.
The traffic incident took place at about 7:44 p.m., north of Pelandale Avenue, in front of the Del Taco.
According to the authorities, Alejandro Contreras, 19, of Modesto, was driving a Ford F-150. He slowed attempting to make a U-turn in the concrete median.
Suddenly, Lowery, on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, rear-ended Contreras’ pickup.
The paramedics rushed Michael Lowery to a Modesto hospital with major head injuries. Officers say he was wearing a helmet when the crash happened.
Contreras, on the other hand, did not sustain injuries from the accident.
Officers say there is a “No U-turn” sign at the scene of the crash but they are considering motorcycle’s speed and its traveling distance from the Ford prior to the accident.
The authorities are still investigating.
As responsible drivers, it is our role to inspect your vehicle’s headlights and turn signals to prevent any possible accidents while on the road. We need to make sure that both front and rear headlamps are working properly and visible enough a couple of yards away.
Also, take a reading of your tire pressure and make sure you maintain the recommended maximum. While at it, take a peek under your vehicle and ensure there are no loose objects or leaks.
Most importantly, stay focused while on the road. Remove all distractions that could cause accidents such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.
