Another Devastating Loss for Turlock High School
October 18, 2019
The Turlock High School was rocked to its very core with the loss of yet another student and the severe injury of another.
Thaily Gutierrez was the passenger in a vehicle traveling on West Avenue South when they entered the intersection at Angelus, they were broadsided on the passenger side by an SUV. Turlock Police report that neither drugs nor alcohol played a part in the accident. Sadly, Thaily was pinned in the car and would later succumb to her injuries. Her friend and driver of the car, Luz Mendez was taken to Valley Children’s Hospital where she is being treated for severe injuries before being allowed to return home to start her recovery.
THS students returned to grief counseling services provided by Jessica’s House. THS students and staff held an emotional memorial for Thaily during lunch at THS on October 17th. The loving tribute to a life cut short was filled with loving testimonials and many tears.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the Gutierrez family in order to help with the costs of her funeral services https://www.gofundme.com/f/thailand-yadhira-gutierrez-solis
