Four Hurt in Sonora Car Crash on Highway 49
SONORA, CA (February 9, 2022) — Four people suffered minor injuries in a 3-car accident on Highway 49 at Old Sonora Columbia Road on Tuesday afternoon.
According to Officer Michael Huddleston with the California Highway Patrol, the multi-car crash happened around 1:08 p.m. For unknown reasons, a man driving a 1987 Pontiac Fiero rear-ended a silver Lexus ES 300, occupied by two Columbia College students.
It appears the Lexus was stopped on the highway due to road construction ahead. Soon after the initial impact, a woman driving an orange Subaru Crosstrek collided with the two cars and flipped on top of both vehicles.
As a result of the accident, the Pontiac driver suffered minor injuries and stayed at the scene. Meanwhile, the Subaru driver and the two college students declined medical transport and relied on others for hospital care transportation.
At this time, the reason for the crash requires additional examination. Therefore, anyone with information should reach out to the CHP.
A few of the leading causes of rear-end car accidents include distracted driving and speeding. Watch your speed and adjust your rate to current road conditions. When focused on the road, you respond better to hazards.
