Sherri Cooley and Megan Cooley Dead Modesto DUI Crash on Tully and Rumble Roads

MODESTO (November 30, 2017) – Two women who died after an alleged DUI crash Wednesday night near Tully and Rumble Roads have been identified as Sherri Cooley and Megan Cooley, according to The Modesto Bee.

Police said Sherri Cooley was 54 years old while Megan Cooley was 21 and both were from Modesto.

As per the article, police affirmed that the victims were riding a 2003 Ford Escape when they were struck by a speeding 2006 Mercedes. The accident involving three vehicles occurred at around 8:30 p.m. near Tully and Rumble roads.

A 16-year-old girl was driving the Mercedes north on Tully Road at a high rate of speed approaching the intersection when she hit the passenger side of the Ford. The Ford, which was making a left eastbound turn onto Rumble Road at the time, then rolled over and landed about 168 feet north of the intersection.

Officials indicated that the passenger of the overturned vehicle, Sherri Cooley, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, Megan Cooley, was taken to a hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries.

Meanwhile, the teen motorist and her two teenage male passengers were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

The 16-year-old was booked into Juvenile Hall for two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter while under the influence after being released from the hospital. The investigation is ongoing.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the family members and friends of Ms. Sherri Cooley and Ms. Megan Cooley during such a difficult time.


Wrongful Death Lawyer

It is evident that the teenage girl will be held fully responsible for causing the incident that led to the death of Ms. Sherri Cooley and Ms. Megan Cooley, since she is accused of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol when the crash occurred. DUI is considered a serious crime throughout the state, especially if the collision tragically killed other individuals.

Aside from DUI, the teen is also accused of speeding at the time of the tragic collision. The family members of the two innocent women have then the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party who has neglected the safety of others on the road. The claim will include a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income and loss of love and companionship.

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. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case.
