Collision results in fatality when man is run over by his own car

A single vehicle collision resulted in one fatality outside Turlock on Saturday when a man was ejected from his car after hitting a pole and was then run over by his own vehicle, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The name of the deceased had not been released as of Tuesday afternoon. He was 51-years old and from Stockton, according to the CHP.

The collision happened around 11:30 p.m. Saturday on W. Monte Vista Avenue and N. Washington Road.

The 51-year-old was driving a 2011 Honda westbound on W. Monte Vista Avenue, approaching the intersection of Washington Road at an estimated speed of 60 miles per hour.

The driver failed to stop for a posted stop sign and continued westbound onto a private dirt road. The left front of the Honda struck a power pole, causing the driver to be ejected from the vehicle. The CHP stated the driver was not wearing a seat belt.

The driver was on the dirt road as the Honda was still moving and it subsequently ran him over. He was found under the Honda by emergency medical responders and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

A passenger in the Honda, Victor Bedoy, 22, of Stockton stated he had no injuries. He was wearing a seat belt at the time of the collision.

The CHP believes drug and/or alcohol were factors in the crash.
