A Lodi woman was arrested following a three-vehicle crash that killed a Lockeford woman on Ray and Peltier roads Thursday evening, authorities said.

Tiffany Shumate, 37, of Lodi, is being treated for moderate injuries at a Sacramento area hospital while in custody for two felony counts of causing injury while driving under the influence of intoxicants and one count of felony DUI manslaughter, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Shumate was driving a 2012 Honda south along Ray Road around 5:30 p.m. when she failed to stop at an intersection and smashed into the right side of a 2007 Toyota, driven by Sherry Beasley, 68, of Lockeford, according to CHP.

Beasley’s car, which was driving west on Peltier Road, spun counter-clockwise and flipped onto its roof, directly in front of LeLand Shackelford, driving a 2012 Chevrolet.

Shackelford couldn’t stop before crashing into the rear of Beasley’s car, according to CHP.

Beasley was pronounced dead at the scene.

Shackleford, 64, of Florida, was transported to San Joaquin General Hospital for moderate injuries, while Shumate was transported to Kaiser South Sacramento.

When Shumate is discharged, she’ll be booked into San Joaquin County Jail.

The crash is still under investigation and any witnesses are encouraged to call the Stockton CHP office at 209-943-8666.
