MODESTO: Sarah Getreu Killed in Pedestrian Accident on McHenry Avenue

Woman killed Modesto pedestrian accident McHenry Avenue 9/21MODESTO (September 21, 2016)- According to the California Highway Patrol, Sarah Getreu, 45, was struck and killed Wednesday morning at the 3100 block of McHenry Avenue.

The incident reported indicated that the Getreu had been pushing a shopping cart across the road upon being struck by a 2014 Nissan Altima at 5:45 a.m.

Getreu tragically suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

It was confirmed that the driver of the involved vehicle identified as Roberto Mendoza, 40, did indeed pull over and was cooperative with authorities as it was determined he was not under the influence.

At this time, it remains unclear whether Getreu was inside a marked crosswalk prior to being hit as McHenry remained closed between Rumble Road and Kavanagh Avenue for several hours.


The staff members of Johnson Attorneys Group thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Ms. Sarah Getreu during such difficult times.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
