Copperopolis Man Injured In Friday’s Wreck

Sponsored by:

Copperopolis, CA — 66-year old Ned Kubitz of Copperopolis is recovering from major injuries after a collision on O´Byrnes Ferry Road Friday afternoon.

Kubitz was driving a 1998 Ford Crown Victoria behind a 1999 Chevy Pickup driven by Robert Cairns of Riverbank.

The CHP says Cairns attempted to make a u-turn but due to a curve in the road did not see Kubitz approaching from the rear.

With Cairns´ vehicle blocking both lanes of traffic, Kubitz swerved to the left but was unable to avoid hitting Cairns.

Kubitz´ vehicle continued off the roadway and down an embankment before coming to a rest.

Kubitz was taken to Sonora Community Hospital. He has been admitted and is listed in fair condition.
