Modesto, CA- One Person Dead After Speeding Car Crashed Into An Apartment Building Along Sam Avenue And Herndon Road
1 person was killed when a vehicle crashed into a wall of an apartment building just outside the city of Ceres early Sunday, June 9, 2019. The address of the crash site was reportedly listed on the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information Page as 1240 Sam Avenue. However, the actual crash site was believed to have occurred through a wall facing Herndon Road. The crash occurred a few minutes before 1:30 am. The house was seen engulfed into flames after the crash. The first fire unit on scene from the Modesto Fire Department, though, did not find the apartment building on fire when they got to the crash site. But, they did find several victims from the crash when the first unit of the said fire department dispatched arrived at the crash site. 3 people reportedly sustained major injuries. The 4th victim, a child, was transported to a children’s hospital for treatment. The vehicle involved in the crash was reportedly a black Chevrolet. The driver was speeding along Holm Avenue just before the crash occurred. The driver was seen not able to stop at the stop sign along Herndon Road, and did not apply the brakes at all at the time. As such, the car smashed into the said apartment building. The driver of the Chevrolet was not injured. The injured people involved in the accident were individuals inside the apartment building. A neighbor who shared a wall with the said apartment shared that her unit was damaged due to the crash. She said, though, that no one in her apartment was hurt. 3 children and a woman were injured due to the crash. The driver was reportedly taken into custody.
