DUI suspected in death of Colusa boy

Home Crime News DUI suspected in death of Colusa boy
Driving under the influence of alcohol is believed to be a factor in the death of a 10-year-old boy from Colusa on Sunday.

The California Highway Patrol said Tony Daniel Kesterson, 29, of Colusa, was driving a 2007 Ford Fusion eastbound on Highway 20 at a high rate of speed when he lost control of the car and hit a concrete wall, killing his son, Nathan Kesterson, who was a passenger in his vehicle.

The collision occurred around 6:30 PM just east just east of South Tarke Road in Sutter County.

CHP Officer B. Baldwin reported that Kesterson was traveling about 50 mph when drove over the westbound lane and hit the wall directly in the path of an oncoming pick-up, driven by Tarjinder Singh, 59, of Sacramento.

Although Singh applied his brakes, he was unable to stop in time to avoid hitting the Kesterson’s vehicle, the CHP.

The front of Singh’s 2014 Toyota Tacoma reportedly hit head on into the rear of the Ford Fusion, causing major damage to both vehicles. Singh was not injured, the CHP said.

Kesterson received injuries to his spine. He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence with a blood alcohol greater than .08, and was booked into the Sutter County Jail on Monday.

Kesterson is also charged on suspicion of DUI resulting in the death, and vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence. His bail was set at $50,000 bail.

Nathan, who was wearing a seatbelt, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision.

A fundraiser set up on gofundme.com by Victoria Bruggman to help the family with final expenses and honor Nathan’s memory raised more than $6,000 of a $10,000 goal within 48 hours.
