Person Dies in Suspected DUI Crash on Highway 99 in Atwater

 
ATWATER, CA (May 18, 2022) — One person died in a suspected DUI accident on Highway 99 near Applegate Road, early Monday.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, the fatal single-car accident happened around 12:54 a.m. For possible DUI-related reasons, a 28-year-old driver in a 2010 BMW 328i crashed into a construction machine in a closed construction area.
 
Upon arriving, investigators determined that the driver entered the closed on-ramp at an unknown speed and drove off the pavement as it reached the end of the newly paved road. From there, the car traveled north on a dirt road before the left side of the vehicle struck a concrete k-rail and overturned.
 
The vehicle subsequently came to a stop when the BMW slammed into a parked paving vehicle.
 
At this time, the fatal victim’s name has not been released. However, reports have described the victim as a 28-year-old from Merced.
