2 Children Seriously Injured in Turlock Crash at Hawkeye Avenue and Golden State Boulevard
TURLOCK (December 14, 2017) – On March 29, Wednesday, two children were injured in a traffic collision at West Hawkeye Avenue and North Golden State Boulevard.
According to an article by the Modesto Bee, the children, only identified as 13-month-old Gia and 4-year-old Genevieve, were traveling in an Acura driven by their mother. While driving in the intersection, the Acura was hit by a speeding Volvo driven by 22-year-old Jorge Tello.
The impact caused injuries to both juveniles. Medical reports indicated that Gia was rushed to a hospital for treatment of injuries including a head trauma, collapsed lungs, and a leg broken in two places. Genevieve reportedly received a CPR at the scene and later underwent surgery for a damaged spinal cord.
As per the article, a warrant was issued for Tello in September on one felony charge of reckless driving causing great bodily injury and one misdemeanor charge of reckless driving causing injury. Tello, who is being held on $110,000 bail, was arraigned Tuesday. He is scheduled to return to court on December 18.
