A man was in critical condition after crashing his car early Sunday morning off Roselle Avenue, Modesto police officer Billy Boyle said in a news release.
According to Boyle, Eric Soria, 28, was traveling south on Roselle Avenue before he crashed his 1999 Lexus sedan at 2:05 a.m.
Soria's vehicle left the road and collided with fences nearby before coming to a stop by a field, Boyle said.
Soria was transported to a nearby hospital with life threatening injuries. Modesto Police Department Traffic Unit took over the investigation due to the nature of the collision, Boyle said.
Currently, the cause of the collision has yet to be determined, but early reports suggested that alcohol and/or drugs and speeding may have been a factor in the collision, Boyle said.
