Fatal Crash Investigated, DUI Suspected

RIVERBANK - A crash involving suspected DUI claimed the life of a motorist and shut down a busy intersection Friday night.

At about 10:00pm, authorities were notified of a reckless motorist on north McHenry Avenue. The call was dispatched to the California Highway Patrol, and allied agencies were notified.

Deputies in the Riverbank area were moving into position to begin searching for the vehicle. Officials say as they approached the area of Oakdale and Patterson Roads they discovered the vehicle, described as a white F-150 type pickup. The truck had collided in the intersection with a dark Lincoln sedan.
