The accident involving a gray Chevrolet sedan, a gray van and a gray Chevrolet Blazer took place near Plainsburg Road at 4:45 p.m.
In an article by Merced County Star, CHP said a 27-year-old Modesto woman was driving a silver 2013 Chevrolet Malibu north on Highway 99 when for an unknown reason she lost control while she was in the far left lane.
The Malibu then spun, went through the center divider and crossed over to the southbound side. Subsequently the woman collided with a blue 1992 GMC Suburban.
The 27-year-old female motorist was killed upon impact. The driver of the Suburban, a 58-year-old Cupertino man, was taken to Fresno Community Regional Medical Center and with a broken leg and other injuries described as non-life-threatening.
A passenger in the Malibu, a 26-year-old woman, was apparently unharmed and refused to be treated at the scene.
The cause of the incident remains under investigation.
The staff members of Johnson Attorneys Group thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their family and friends during such difficult times.
