POSTED December 19, 2017 1:06 p.m.

An early morning collision Tuesday on the outskirts of Turlock resulted in the death of a 29-year-old Hilmar man and an unborn baby, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The name of the deceased male has not been released, pending next of kin notification.

The collision between the 2014 Dodge Challenger and the 2012 Ford Fusion happened around 7:45 a.m. on Golden State Boulevard and Griffith Avenue.

The driver of the Ford Fusion was identified as a 24-year-old Turlock woman. She was eight months pregnant and had to undergo an emergency C-section following the collision, in which the baby did not survive, said CHP spokesman Officer Eric Zuniga.

The Ford Fusion was traveling westbound on Golden State Boulevard and the Dodge Challenger was stopped at a stop sign on Griffith Avenue. For an unknown reason, the driver of the Challenger entered the intersection directly into the path of the Ford Fusion, Zuniga said.

The Ford Fusion struck the driver’s side of the Dodge.

A Medi-Flight helicopter landed at the scene, but emergency responders decided an ambulance was the better option for the 29-year-old and he was rushed to Emanuel Medical Center, where he later died from his injuries.

The 24-year-old woman was rushed to a hospital by witnesses to the crash. She is expected to recover from the injuries she sustained, according to the CHP.

Along with the CHP, Merced County Fire, Turlock Rural Fire Department and Turlock Fire Department all responded to the scene.

It’s unknown at this time if alcohol or drugs were factors in the collision. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Officer Eric Zuniga at 356-6608.

Damn, look at the roads, there is snow and they decide to race!? Wtf...regardless hope the Challenger driver makes it and honestly hope the police don't find out the driver of the Charger, one young life may end up being lost, there is no reason the law should ruin the life of the other child I'm pretty sure they learned their lesson here.

A 38-year-old man died as a result of injuries he suffered in a one-vehicle wreck that occurred on County Road 3501 in Van Zandt County Saturday night after his Dodge Challenger went off the road, struck two trees, and went through a barbed-wire fence.

According to a press release, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers responded to a report of a one-vehicle crash on CR 3501 at about 9:10 p.m. Saturday. The crash occurred about two miles west of Wills Point.

The preliminary crash investigation shows that William Robert-Dwain Brown, of Forney, was traveling north on CR 3523, where it merged into CR 3501 in a curve in the road. Because he was traveling at an unsafe speed, Brown lost control in the curve and went into a side skid, the press release stated.
Brown’s Dodge Challenger then skidded through a grassy area and struck a tree, which caused damage to its left side. 

“After striking the first tree, it was propelled into another tree and barbed wire fence, causing damage to its front,” the press release stated. “The vehicle came to rest facing north in the grassy area north of the roadway.”

Brown was taken to the Hunt Regional Emergency Medical Center in Quinlan, where he was later pronounced dead by Dr. Michael Corpus, the press release stated. His body was transported to the Ingram Funeral Home in Quinlan.
