Car Driver Killed in Modesto Train Accident near Highway 132 and Santa Fe Avenue

Modesto, California – One person was killed in a Modesto train crash near Highway 132 and Santa Fe Avenue on Tuesday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A man driving an SUV went through the crossing arms that had started to come down. He was struck after he stopped in the middle of the railroad tracks.

The driver, who was identified as a 60-year-old Empire resident, was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

Authorities said the driver was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner 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 to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

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. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
