Torem & Associates

Modesto, CA (September 10, 2021) – Two people were victimized in an auto accident in Modesto on Tuesday, September 7. Clavey Carlson, aged 25, of Modesto, lost his life in the wreck. Damien McGee, aged 43, sustained injuries after the two-car collision. 

The incident was reported to have taken place on McHenry Avenue just south of Kiernan Avenue just after 9:00 p.m. on the 7th. Preliminary reports concerning the collision show that Carlson was headed south on McHenry in a Subaru approaching a van pulling a trailer, driven by McGee. 

The Subaru rear-ended the trailer, which was then separated from the van due to the impact. The van kept on heading southwest before it drifted off of the road and rolled over. The Subaru then struck a utility pole and knocked it over, according to information from local officials. 

Emergency crews transported Carlson to Doctors Medical Center where he later succumbed to his injuries and passed away. The information further provided by reports showed that McGee sustained minor injuries in the crash. 

Investigators in Modesto are trying to determine whether speed, drugs, and/or alcohol were a factor in the accident. 

We would like to offer our sincere sympathies to the family of Clavey Carlson at this time.
