Modesto, CA (October 22, 2021) – A 64-year-old Oakdale resident identified as Olga Bentulan lost her life on the morning of Wednesday, October 21. She was involved in an auto collision in Modesto reported at around 7:20 a.m., officials said.

A Ford pickup and a Toyota SUV collided head-on in the area of Parker Road and Wellsford Road, according to information provided by the California Highway Patrol. Investigators are still trying to determine which driver was responsible for the crash. 

Paramedics transported Bentulan to Memorial Medical Center from the scene. She was later pronounced deceased at the hospital. The pickup truck’s driver, identified as Kenneth Brickey, 41, of Waterford, sustained minor injuries. 

A 1-year-old child who was present in the truck at the time was not injured, according to reports.  Traffic was delayed in the vicinity of the crash site for an extended period of time on the morning of October 21 while responders worked to secure the scene. Drivers commuting in the area were forced to find alternative travel routes for the time being. 

Police in Modesto continue to investigate the details of the incident. 

We would like to offer our sincere sympathies to the family of Olga Bentulan at this time. 

Modesto Car Accidents

The state of California provides avenues that accident victims can take to secure compensation for various costs they face after an accident. Working with a Modesto personal injury lawyer is your best at getting the justice and compensation you deserve if you or someone you love has recently suffered injuries in a car accident caused by negligence.

Auto accidents that occur in Modesto and across the Golden State leave more than 10,000 people injured every month. Many people are left with brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones that require extensive medical treatment. In most cases, victims are simply not able to pay out tens of thousands of dollars for surgical procedures, medication, and hospitalization. The inability to pay an exorbitant amount of money for something they need can be extremely stressful, especially when they are suffering due to another person’s reckless actions. 

Auto Accident Attorneys in Modesto

For nearly four decades, California personal injury attorneys at Torem & Associates have advocated on behalf of accident victims throughout our state to make sure they are able to get the compensation they need to move forward from the difficult and painful aftermath of their collision. 

When victims are injured in collisions resulting from careless and reckless drivers, they should reach out to a car accident attorney in Modesto as soon as possible. Victims may be entitled to financial compensation to help alleviate the financial burdens they face moving forward. Financial compensation can help cover the cost of medical and mental health treatment. It may also be able to help with non-economic damages like pain and suffering depending on the severity of the accident.

Head-on collisions are more likely to leave victims with broken bones, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries, all of which require extensive medical treatment. Some common causes of these types of collisions can include people texting or using cellphones while driving, drunk driving, speeding, ignoring traffic control devices, and engaging in driving behaviors that are entirely unsafe. When victims have lost a loved one to the negligence of another driver, they should consult with a Modesto wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. Working with a knowledgeable legal team in the aftermath of your accident can make a world of difference when it comes to your chances of protecting your legal rights and getting the justice you deserve.
