24-Year-Old Woman, 3-Year-Old Child Injured in Modesto Car Accident at Yosemite Avenue and Tuolumne Boulevard

Modesto, California (January 1, 2020) – A woman and a child were injured Tuesday in a traffic accident involving a stolen truck in Modesto, authorities said.

At around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, December 31, authorities received a report of Toyota Tacoma that was stolen from a home.

The Toyota was spotted by authorities in the area of S. Carpenter Road and California Avenue, but lost sight of it.

The Toyota was found driving recklessly around Paradise Road and Yosemite Avenue. The suspect kept driving southbound on Yosemite Avenue.

Officers turned on their emergency lights and attempted to catch up to the truck. The suspected, Dustin Degetaire, 21, of Jamestown, ran a red light at  intersection of the Yosemite Avenue and Tuolumne Road and slammed into a Volkswagen Passat driven by a 24-year-old woman.

Degetaire attempted to flee the scene of the accident, but he was later caught and arrested by authorities.

Degetaire was treated before being booked into the Stanislaus County Jail on charges of burglary, resisting arrest, vehicle theft, hit-and-run causing injuries and driving with a suspended license.

The woman sustained major injuries and was transported to a hospital. Her juvenile passenger had minor injuries.

The accident remains under investigation. Anyone with information about the accident is asked to contact the traffic unit at (209)572-9500 or at (209)521-4636.
