At about 3:55 am Sunday morning, the Turlock Police Department was dispatched to a reported hit and run vehicle collision in front of a residence in the 2200 block of East Canal Drive, Turlock.
When officers arrived on scene, they located two vehicles involved. One was a gray Toyota sedan and the other was a silver Toyota sedan.
The gray Toyota sedan had one occupant, later identified as Maria Zamora, 28, of Turlock, who had fled on foot prior to officers’ arrival. Officers later located Zamora and she was uninjured. The silver Toyota sedan was parked on the side of the road and unoccupied.
Officers located Zamora near Pioneer Avenue and East Main Street and she admitted that she was driving the vehicle when the collision occured. Officers noticed signs of intoxication coming from her and began conducting standardized field sobriety tests on her, which ultimately led to them arresting her.
Officers began investigating and determined that Zamora was traveling eastbound, when for an unknown reason, she swerved to the right and struck the rear of the silver Toyota sedan which caused her vehicle to end up in the front yard in front of where the collision occurred.
Zamora was booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on charges of driving while intoxicated and hit and run causing property damage.
