Modesto, CA – Fatal Bicycle Accident on 7th Street in Modesto

Modesto, CA (July 20, 2018) – A local and trustworthy news source reported a fatal accident between a bicyclist and a motor vehicle on 7th Street near Pecos Avenue Thursday night. The accident that involved a Toyota Sienna and was reported by the California Highway Patrol apparently occurred at approximately 10:10 p.m.

Officials from the California Highway Patrol responded to the scene of the accident where a 57-year-old man had been fatally struck by the Toyota minivan which caused the bicyclist to be thrown off his bike. Emergency responders arrived on the scene to assist the injured man. An air ambulance had to be called in order to rush the severely wounded victim to the hospital. The man was immediately flown to Memorial Medical Center, where he was unfortunately pronounced dead.

49-year-old Esther Orozco Toledo of Modesto was the uninjured driver of the minivan that struck the cyclist. She reportedly stayed at the scene and fully cooperated with authorities. No further information has been provided in regards to this crash. The name of the victim has not been released, most likely in order to give authorities time to notify loved ones. An investigation is presently ongoing.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family members of the victim during these devastatingly tragic time.

California Bicycle Accident and Wrongful Death

Although the driver who struck the cyclist remained at the scene, investigators will certainly be looking at her condition prior to the accident. The investigation will focus on whether or not there was any negligent behavior involved in order to determine liability. Depending on the results of the investigation, there will possibly be grounds for a wrongful death claim to follow. However, the choice to seek compensation is a personal decision that only the family members of the victim can make.
