3-Vehicle Fatal Crash on Highway 99
LODI, Calif. (July 25, 2018) — A passenger died and a driver was injured Wednesday morning in a 3-vehicle collision on Highway 99 at Armstrong Road, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash took place about 5:21 a.m. this morning and was blocking the No. 3 lane of the roadway. Police issued a SigAlert for the Nos. 2 and 3 lanes. The roadway was reduced to only one traffic lane on the northbound side.
Police say a white 2009 Ford Taurus was traveling at approximately 75-80 mph when its driver lost control and struck another motorist in a white GMC pickup truck.
Next, the Taurus struck a concrete median wall on the highway, then passed the GMC and crashed into a Ford transit van that had been traveling in front of the GMC.
A passenger who was in the front seat of the Taurus was pronounced dead on the scene. Meanwhile, the driver of the Taurus was hospitalized with minor injuries.
At least one vehicle was towed for evidence after the collision. Police are heading up an investigation into what caused the crash and liability.
