Riverbank: A 4 year old Riverbank child died as a result of injuries sustained in a collision at Castleburg park on September 11th, according to the CHP.

The collision happened at 7:43 PM in the parking lot of Castleburg park, according to CHP officer Eric Parsons. 30 year old Sergio Calvo Jr of Riverbank was driving through to leave the parking lot, when a 4 year old male, who family members say his name was Daniel, rode his scooter into the parking lot.

The front of Mr. Calvo's Chevy 2500 struck the boy, who was taken to Memorial Hospital by ambulance, but later died as a result of the collision.

Officials do not believe alcohol or drugs are a factor in the incident. Officer Parsons stressed the importance of being mindful of surroundings and the importance of both watching out for children, and teaching them to watch for vehicles at a very young age.

Fatal accident; Alcohol Suspected

Written by


On Saturday morning at approximately 2:15 AM a 2007 Honda Accord was traveling Eastbound on Belharbour Drive east of Rosetti Court. The vehicle struck the north side curb, went off the roadway, and collided with a tree just north of the roadway. This section of Belharbour has several curves in the roadway in the area leading up to the location of the collision. Due to the impact with the tree, the vehicle sustained major damage and eventually caught fire after both occupants had already exited the vehicle.

The initial Modesto Police Officer who arrived on scene of the collision performed cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the driver. Despite additional life saving measures provided by other first responders, the driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. The drivers name is being withheld pending notification of his family members. He was a 26 year old Modesto resident. The vehicle had one additional passenger who suffered a broken jaw. He is a 19 year old Modesto resident and is being treated at a local hospital.

As standard protocol in a fatal vehicle collision, the Modesto Police Department Traffic Unit has initiated a comprehensive collision investigation. The cause of this collision is still under investigation as traffic investigators are still locating potential witnesses and assessing evidence located at the scene of the collision. Initial information gathered at the scene indicates alcohol may have been a factor in the collision. At this time, it is unknown if the diver was wearing his seatbelt. The passenger appears to have been wearing his seatbelt at the time of the collision.

Anyone with information or witnesses to this collision is encouraged to contact Traffic Officer Nelson at 209-652-2160.
