A 32-year-old man was hit and killed by several vehicles on Highway 99 in Modesto. The Stockton man was driving a 1996 Acura Integra when he went off the road and crashed into a ditch.
The crash occurred around 2.12 a.m. on 13th June 2021. According to the California Highway Patrol that when the accident car crashed into the ditch, the car overturned several times and the victim was thrown out of the car. The victim is believed to be wearing the seat belt but the impact of the overturning may have caused it to break free, ejecting the victim out of the car.
The driver who was the sole occupant of the car was thrown into the middle lane of the highway and was hit by several moving cars. None of the drivers stopped to help the victim nor called 911.
The California Highway Patrol is looking for the multiple drivers who struck the man after he was ejected during a rollover crash. Unfortunately, the victim suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene of the car accident.
The investigation is underway and the traffic on the highway was halted for several hours post the accident. The CHP has requested any drivers who were involved in the crash or believe they might have been to get in touch with the CHP’s Modesto office at 209-545-7440 or the CHP’s nonemergency dispatch center at 209-356-2800.
