Woman Struck and Killed on Highway 99 in Galt, CA

Debra Arnette Jackson, 65, was struck and killed in a pedestrian accident on Sunday on Highway 99.

The fatal accident began when a driver attempting to avoid debris in the roadway from an earlier crash, swerved and struck the Galt woman as she walked back to her vehicle. Upon impact, Debra Jackson was thrown into a field. There, she sustained major injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash took place at about 5:14 a.m. on July 18 on the northbound side of Highway 99 near Mingo Road, according to the California Highway Patrol group. Prior to the deadly pedestrian collision, Estevan Mora, 25, of Stockton, was heading northbound on Highway 99. He reportedly made an unsafe turn and crashed his Ford Mustang into a center divider. Metal and plastic debris from the barriers reportedly fell into the northbound lanes of Highway 99.

Moments later, a 63-year-old Ione woman in a Toyota Corolla hit the debris and pulled over on the right shoulder. Debra Arnette Jackson’s Chevrolet Malibu also ran over the debris just moments later. She also pulled over behind the Toyota on the right shoulder.

At some point, Debra Jackson exited her vehicle and walked over to the driver in the Toyota. After the two women talked about what happened, Jackson walked back to her car. This is when an oncoming Toyota Camry struck the woman. The 43-year-old man driving the Camry had swerved to avoid the debris in the road. He lost control of his car and hit the pedestrian.

According to authorities, Estevan Mora seemed to be intoxicated. He was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
