CHP report on fatal collision

   According to the CHP report on November 26, 2016 at approximately 2:15 PM  Robert Kimmel (23) of Lockeford, was driving a 1993 Garbage Truck eastbound on Hwy 12 west of Central Hill Road outside San Andreas
at an unknown speed.  It was raining.

   Ray Peart (51) of Stockton was driving a 2015 Chrysler van westbound on Hwy 12 at an unknown speed.

   For an unknown reason Kimmel lost control of the garbage truck, causing it to slide sideways and travel partially into the westbound traffic lane.

   As a result, the rear of the garbage truck collided with the left side of the Chrysler. Mr. Peart received major left side intrusion resulting in fatal injuries.

  Kimmel was transported to Modesto Memorial and treated for moderate injuries.  The passenger in the Chrysler, Susan Peart, (60) of Stockton, was transported to Mark Twain Hospital and treated for minor injuries.

   Per CHP alcohol or drugs are not suspected to be a factor in this collision.
