    California Deputy, Civilian Employee Killed in Fiery Crash

    MODESTO, California -- The Stanislaus County Sheriff and his command staff were in Washington, D.C., on Saturday to pay tribute to a deputy who was killed six months ago in the line of duty when they got word of another tragedy for the department. A sheriff's deputy and a community service officer were killed in a fiery crash while on their way to a burglary call in south Modesto.

    Deputy Jason Garner, a nine-year veteran of the force, and Community Service Officer Raschel Johnson, who has been with the department for 15 years, both died at the scene, according to Stanislaus Undersheriff Ralph Ghimenti.

    Garner was driving north on Crows Landing Road approaching Seventh Street, with Johnson riding as a passenger, when for unknown reasons the patrol vehicle left the roadway and crashed on the Modesto Auto Wreckers property on the west side of the road, said Officer Thomas Olsen, spokesman for the California Highway Patrol. The vehicle somehow ended up atop a dumpster, where it caught fire.
