A woman who was fatally injured in a Modesto car accident the night of May 21, 2010 has been identified as 54-year-old Roselyn Mayen. The Modesto Bee reports that Mayen was a passenger in a 1994 Chevy SUV whose driver lost control and crashed on Highway 99. The SUV with seven people suddenly went off the shoulder of the roadway and rolled down an embankment. Mayen died at a local hospital while 41-year-old Alfredo Caballero, another passenger, was transported to a hospital with serious injuries. An investigation is ongoing.
I offer my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Roselyn Mayen for their heartbreaking and sudden loss. I truly hope Caballero has not sustained catastrophic injuries and pray that he recovers quickly and completely from his major injuries.
