Car crashes onto sidewalk in downtown Modesto

Four people suffered minor injuries Wednesday afternoon when the pickup they were riding in struck a car and crashed onto a downtown Modesto sidewalk, landing on its side near a floral business.

The gray Toyota pickup came to rest next to the wall facing the 13th Street side of Oopsa Daisy Florist, at 1230 H St.

The pickup and a green Dodge were heading west on H Street approaching 13th Street about 2:20 p.m, according to Modesto Police Sgt. Daniel Key.

The pickup was in the middle lane and the car was in the far left lane, he said. For an unknown reason, the pickup veered into the far left lane. Key said the Dodge struck the pickup, and the force of the impact caused the pickup to overturn before coming to rest on its passenger side facing east.

The driver of the Dodge was uninjured, Key said. No other occupants were in the Dodge.
