Modesto fatal canal crash investigated

Passersby tried to rescue the driver of a car that overturned into a Modesto canal Friday morning.

Modesto Regional Fire Authority Battalion Chief Cecil Ridge said it was unclear why the driver of the car lost control as he was traveling westbound on Briggsmore Avenue, just west of College Avenue, about 6:30 a.m. The car left the roadway and overturned, coming to a stop half-submerged in the water.

The Good Samaritans had been able to pull the driver out of the car as fire crews and EMTs arrived, Ridge said. The driver was transported to Doctors Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Ridge wanted to thank those who tried to save the victim.

Two people who died following a collision between a pickup truck and a minivan in Modesto have been identified.

The Stanislaus County coroner identified the victims as 12-year-old Ashleigh Wright of San Jose and 48-year-old Curtis Lanch of Santa Clara.

Five people were in the minivan. Ashleigh and Lanch in the Honda were killed. A 14-year-old boy suffered critical injuries and was hospitalized. The 36-year-old woman behind the wheel and a 43-year-old man suffered minor injuries.

The driver of the Dodge was not hurt.
