At about 1:49 pm Wednesday afternoon, the Turlock Police Department, Turlock Fire Department, and American Medical Response were dispatched to a vehicle collision with injuries in front of Crane Terrace Apartments, 1318 East Canal Drive, Turlock.
When crews arrived on scene, they located three vehicles involved. One was a blue Ford muscle car, one was a gray Toyota sedan, and the last was a silver Toyota pickup truck. The blue Ford muscle car had two occupants. One was ejected from the vehicle and thrown on to the ground while the other was pinned in the vehicle and had to be extricated. Both suffered major injuries and were ground transported by American Medical Response to local hospitals. The two other vehicles were parked and unoccupied.
Officers began their investigation and determined that the blue Ford muscle car was traveling eastbound on East Canal Drive approaching Bell Street at a high rate of speed, when for an unknown reason, it struck the right rear of the gray Toyota sedan which was parked on the left side of the road. It then struck a tree, which pushed it into a silver Toyota pickup truck where it came to final rest.
The investigation remains on-going. Anyone with information that could assist in the investigation is encouraged to call Officer Richard Fortado at 209-664-7399.
