Modesto, CA (March 3, 2023) – Authorities confirmed that a 10-year-old girl was hospitalized after a vehicle crashed into her home on Saturday afternoon.

At around 1:30 p.m. on February 25, the California Highway Patrol troopers were called to provide assistance at the scene of a crash that took place on Sharon Way.

Crash investigations show that an elderly woman was driving in the area of Sharon Way and Prescott Road when she experienced a medical issue during the afternoon hours. As a result, her vehicle went off the roadway and crashed into the garage of a neighbor’s home. The vehicle continued forward and ended up in the bedroom of the home.

A 10-year-old girl that was in the bedroom suffered injuries as a result of the crash. She was transported to Memorial Medical Center for emergency care. After arriving at the hospital, she was then airlifted to Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera, California, for emergency treatment.

The California Highway Patrol is actively investigating the accident.
