Be prepared when you hit the road. Here are some quick tips on what to do if you are in a car accident.

High speed is believed to be a factor in a collision that killed an Escalon man in downtown Modesto early Tuesday morning.

The man crashed into a tree on 14th Street north of H Street just after midnight, said Modesto Police Sgt. Kalani Souza.

He was identified by the Stanislaus County Coroner’s Office as 21-year-old Roberto Galvan-Armaraz Jr.

Galvan-Armaraz’s body was pinned inside the vehicle and he died at the scene.

Souza said drugs or alcohol do not appear to be factors in the collision.
