TURLOCK, CA (August 23, 2022) – Friday, Kaisee Budworth was involved in a pedestrian crash on Golden State Road that killed Michael Burks.

The fatal incident happened shortly after midnight south of Barnhart Road.

According to police, Burks was in the middle of the southbound lane when 22-year-old Budworth, driving a silver Ford sedan, struck him while going south on Golden State Road.

Emergency crews were dispatched to the scene shortly after and medics transported Burks to a nearby hospital for treatment. At the hospital, 51-year-old Burks succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.
