66-year-old Robert Roberson of Jamestown was hit by an oncoming vehicle driven by 41-year-old Annadine Matheny of Jamestown. As reported previously, the CHP said that Matheny had been passing vehicles over the double yellow lines, and was going down the middle of the road when she crashed into Roberson's vehicle near Golf Links Road. Roberson was life-flighted to Memorial Medical Center in Modesto, and Matheny was taken to Doctors Medical Center. Roberson passed away over the weekend.
