An 18-year-old Tracy woman sustained major injuries when the vehicle she was driving collided with another SUV at the intersection of Highway 120 and Pioneer Avenue near Oakdale on April 26, according to Modesto-area California Highway spokesman officer Eric Parsons.

Alexandra Castello was traveling north in a Chevy Tahoe around 9:30 p.m. when she reportedly failed to stop at the intersection stop sign, Parsons said. Her vehicle collided with a Nissan Armada being driven by 38-year-old John Egger of Sonora. Kim Egger, 43, also of Sonora was a passenger in the Nissan.

Parsons said investigators believe Castello was using her cell phone at the time of the collision.

All three victims were taken to Memorial Hospital with varying injuries, he said.

The accident is still under investigations and no one has been cited for the collision, he said.

Costello is reportedly a senior at Tracy High School.

Glad she didn't kill anyone. Sounds about right not stopping at a posted stop sign. To many people are above the law and do not stop at signs any longer. I really don't think they teach this law in drivers training anymore. On the way home from store behind a family owned car posting a driver training business that was not using turn signals and almost every stop sign was a California stop or close enough to call a no stop. Should also check the cel phone records normal for teen drivers.
