Rollover On Twain Harte Grade

Sponsored by:

A Merced man was injured Tuesday afternoon when he lost control of his Toyota minivan and rolled about 40 feet down an embankment on Highway 108 near Soulsbyville.

Highway patrol officers say Donald Thompson was driving eastbound up the Twain Harte Grade at about 2:30 p.m. when he apparently lost control of the van. The van went over the center dirt highway divider, crossed the westbound lanes and landed in a thick growth of trees on its top down the embankment.

He was transported by ambulance to Tuolumne General Hospital.
