The Modesto Police Department is investigating a fatal traffic collision that occurred on McHenry Avenue last night.

At about 8:20 PM on Wednesday night Modesto police officers responded to a report of a vehicle versus pedestrian traffic collision near the intersection of McHenry Avenue and Briggsmore Avenue. When medical personnel and patrol officers arrived they discovered a critically injured man in the roadway. First responders administered CPR and emergency lifesaving measures at the scene. The man was transported to a local hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

The preliminary investigation suggests that the pedestrian was in the northbound lanes of McHenry Avenue, south of Briggsmore Avenue when he was struck by a northbound SUV. Moments later, the man was struck by a second vehicle that was also traveling in the northbound lanes of McHenry south of the intersection.

At this early stage in the investigation the exact cause of the collision continues to be under investigation. Neither of the drivers appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The identity of the pedestrian involved in this collision is being withheld pending notification of next-of-kin. He is being described as a white male in his late teens or early 20’s.

Traffic on McHenry between Granger and Briggsmore was diverted for several hours as the scene was processed by traffic investigators.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact Traffic Officer Rodney Garcia at 572-9500.
