Fatal Semi Truck and Car Crash on Highway 140 in Le Grand
LE GRAND, CA (May 25, 2019) – A 54-year-old Modesto woman was killed after her car crashed into a semi-trailer truck Saturday afternoon in Merced County.
The fatal crash happened around 12:37 p.m. on Highway 140, just East of Hayden Road.
A 2017 Mack tractor truck had slowed down to a stop in the eastbound lane of the highway and was making a turn into a dirt driveway. There were other vehicles stopped behind the truck.
For unknown reasons, the woman driving a 2014 Honda Accord did not see the stopped vehicles in front of her. She swerved left to avoid the stopped cars and collided head-on with the truck, which was making a left turn into the dirt driveway.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name has not yet been released pending family notification.
The driver of the truck,
The crash is still under investigation.
