Woman, 74, dies in crash

A 74-year-old woman died Tuesday afternoon of injuries suffered in a car crash outside Johansen High School in east Modesto, police said.

The crash happened at about 2 p.m., just after school ended. The victim, Sarah Penland of Modesto, had just picked up her grandson and two friends at the back side of the school and left a parking lot on Norseman Drive, Sgt. Bill Ryan said.

Penland pulled her Chevrolet Cavalier into the center turn lane, where a Chevrolet Suburban struck her car from behind. The crash pushed the car to the right, head-on into a light pole.

Police described the Suburban's driver as a 17-year-old student who had pulled from a parking lot farther south on Norseman. Police withheld the driver's name because she is a juvenile.

Penland did not regain consciousness after the crash, Ryan said. She was pronounced dead at Memorial Medical Center.

Her grandson and his two friends were taken to Doctors Medical Center and treated for minor injuries.

The Suburban's driver and a 16-year-old female passenger were not injured in the crash, Ryan said.

"With the congestion on a normal day back there when students are leaving school, it doesn't appear that speed was a factor," Ryan said. "It appears the Suburban had the right of way, but we have not determined fault yet.

"The investigation is continuing. We still have some witnesses to interview, and we still need to analyze the damage to the car."
