 Fatal Crash Faith Home Road and Fulkerth Road in Turlock

Woman Killed, Teen Driver Arrested DUI, Vehicular Manslaughter

TURLOCK, Calif. (Feb. 26, 2024) — A fatal crash happened Sunday afternoon at Fulkerth Road and Faith Home Road in the Turlock area, just south of Modesto.

The two-vehicle collision occurred at the intersection controlled by stop signs in all four directions at around 3:30 p.m. on Feb. 25th, according to the California Highway Patrol dispatch.

A 17-year-old Modesto boy and his female passenger were heading eastbound in a red 2013 Buick sedan on Fulkerth Road. The teen driver allegedly drove through a stop sign and collided with a northbound 2004 GMC pickup truck hauling a cattle or horse trailer, the report said.

The 49-year-old man driving the pickup truck was attempting a left-hand turn to go west on Fulkerth Road when the car crashed into it, according to a report by CBS News.

A 21-year-old Modesto woman riding as a passenger in the red car sustained major injuries and died following the crash. Authorities say she was not wearing her seatbelt.

Meanwhile, investigators determined the 17-year-old driver of the red Ford was driving under the influence and gross vehicular manslaughter and driving on a suspended license.

The fatal crash on Fulkerth Road remains under investigation.
