Stanislaus County Coroner’s Office has identified the deceased as Raul Esquivel Jr., 38, of Turlock.

The collision occurred at approximately 3 a.m. on Highway 99 just north of the Fulkerth Road, when the driver lost control of the vehicle, with the vehicle eventually rolling.

The driver, Kathryn Esquivel, 37, was traveling southbound on Highway 99 when she lost control of the BMW and collided into the concrete center divider, according to the California Highway Patrol collision report.

Kathryn Esquivel continued traveling southwest where she ran off the road and overturned the vehicle.

The collision was caused due to the driver’s “level of intoxication,” according to the CHP report.

Kathryn Esquivel was arrested for vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, DUI with injury, and driving with a suspended license. She is being held at the Stanislaus County Jail on $100,000 bail.

According to CHP, Raul Esquivel was in the front passenger seat and not wearing a seatbelt. He was pronounced deceased at the scene by medical personnel.

The driver was wearing a seatbelt and complained of stomach pain following the collision. A third vehicle occupant, Javier Esquivel, 30, who was in back and wearing a seatbelt, complained of chest pain.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
