Torem & Associates

Modesto, CA (August 31, 2021) – Authorities in Modesto were called to the scene of a major injury accident on the morning of Sunday, August 29. The incident took place just before 9:00 a.m. and involved a white Toyota SUV and a gray Dodge pickup truck hauling a personal watercraft, according to reports. 

The wreck happened on Albers Road in the vicinity of State Route 132, sources said. Information from officials states that two adults and four children suffered injuries in the collision. The nature of the injuries sustained has not been immediately disclosed, however. Various sources state that at least one minor was transported from the scene by ambulance to Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera for treatment. 

The Dodge pickup truck was hauling a trailer at the time of the wreck. It came to a stop in the road and the personal watercraft being hauled behind it was propelled along the east side of the roadway. The impact forced the Toyota off of the road and into a ditch on the east shoulder of Albers Road. 

No further information has been released at this time. Authorities in Modesto continue to investigate. 

Our thoughts are with everyone involved. We hope for their full recovery. 

Auto Accidents in Modesto

The state of California is known for its entertaining locations and perfect weather. There is much to enjoy here with friends and family. The Golden State’s residency continues to increase due to being favored by many. However, the state does have its downfalls. In fact, California is one of the most unsafe places for drivers in the United States. 

Information from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety states that California sees the highest number of auto collisions and fatalities caused by auto collisions in the nation. The large population in the state comes with a large number of drivers on the road at any given time, which directly results in more accidents. 

On average, the state sees approximately 200,000 injury accidents take place per year and over 3,500 fatalities that result from these wrecks. Injurious and fatal accidents can happen for many reasons. Unfortunately, one of the leading causes of auto accidents throughout the US and in California specifically, currently, is negligent driving. Negligent, reckless, and careless drivers cause nearly all of the vehicle accidents in the United States. 

These types of accidents often result in serious and debilitating injuries for victims, and sometimes even death. Being involved in a serious auto accident can have devastating consequences for victims and their families, especially one caused by driver negligence. Accidents caused by driver negligence are often more catastrophic than other types of collisions. Read on to find out how you can maximize your recoveries if you or someone you love has sustained injuries in a negligently caused car crash in Modesto, or another location in California.
