2 Killed in Multi-Vehicle Accident on Crows Landing Road in Modesto

Modesto, California – Two people were killed on Friday night following a Modesto DUI crash on Crows Landing Road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP said a 24-year-old Modesto man was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado pickup northbound while at the same time, a 2010 Lexus IS 250 sedan and a 2008 Suzuki Vitara Compact SUV was traveling southbound.

Reportedly, the Silverado driver lost control of his vehicle and drifted into southbound lanes direct into the path of the Lexus, colliding head-on.

Following the impact of the crash, the Lexus was pushed off the west side of the road and burst into blames.

The Silverado remained in the southbound lane, where the Suzuki’s front end struck its left side.

The Lexus driver was pronounced dead at the scene while the Silverado driver succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment at Memorial Medical Center.

The Suzuki driver, Neida Rivas-Ramirez, 21, of Modesto, was wearing a seatbelt during the collision and was not injured.

Names of the deceased were not immediately released pending notification of the families.

CHP said intoxication appeared to have a contributor in the crash, but an investigation is ongoing.

Arin Khodaverdian, CEO and Managing Attorney of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights. Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
