[03-06-2023] Three People Killed, Two Others Injured in Two-Vehicle Crash near PattersonThree people were killed while two others were injured after a two-vehicle collision in Stanislaus County on Monday afternoon, March 06, 2023.

The California Highway Patrol reported that the fatal crash occurred at about 2:20 p.m. at the intersection of Orange and Elm avenues, east of Patterson.

A Ram pickup truck was heading east on Orange, which has a stop sign at the intersection, when the driver reportedly failed to give way to a Dodge SUV traveling south on Elm, which does not have a stop sign.

The pickup drove directly into the SUV’s path; the SUV then struck head-on the pickup’s left side. Both cars went off the intersection’s southeast side and turned to their left sides.

The SUV’s three occupants, two unidentified adult men and a woman, died on the spot. The pickup driver, 20-year-old Mario E. from Crows Landing, and his passenger, 20-year-old Amy G. from Ceres, were sent to Doctors Medical Center with minor injuries.

Though the deadly collision remains under investigation, the damage inflicted to both cars and where they came to rest indicated that the pickup driver likely did not stop.

It is currently unknown whether drugs or alcohol played a role. Seat belts will also be examined to see whether they were fastened during the crash.
