Three people killed in weekend wrecks

By JASON ECK

Three people, including a 12-year-old boy, died yesterday in two separate crashes in Tuolumne County.

Officers continue to investigate an accident on Highway 108 east of Long Barn in which two people died yesterday morning.

A California Highway Patrol report states Tamara Crow, 26, of Santa Clara, was driving a sport utility vehicle east on Highway 108 at a high rate of speed at 7:25 a.m. The highway was wet with snow that had melted away, and Crow lost control of her vehicle, slid off the highway and hit two trees on the south shoulder of the highway.

Two passengers in her vehicle, Cody M. Tatro, 26, of Walnut Creek, and a 12-year-old Danville boy whose name was not released, died upon impact.

Crow was taken by air ambulance to Doctors Medical Center in Modesto with a broken right arm and complaints of pain to her hips, left hand, head, neck and face.

The report states Crow had been drinking alcohol before the collision, but her blood-alcohol level tested under the legal limit of .08, the CHP said this morning. She was not charged with drunken driving.

In the second crash, a Corning woman died when an SUV in which she was riding flipped over on Highway 108 east of Knights Ferry in western Tuolumne County, the California Highway Patrol said.

Jesus Gomez, 19, of Corning, was driving west on Highway 108 at 65 mph, with three passengers at 3:15 p.m., the CHP report indicates.

The report states Gomez was unable to make a right curve in the road east of South Tulloch Road. He drove into the center divide and overturned.

Two passengers seated in the back were ejected.

Jennifer Parker, 19, of Corning, died in the crash.
