A 29-year-old Pollock Pines woman is being treated for major injuries at Modesto’s Memorial Hospital, after a four-vehicle chain reaction accident yesterday on Highway 49.
Highway Patrol investigators say Nicole Tennis had stopped behind two other vehicles to allow a left turn from the highway to Meacham Ranch Road in Calaveras County. Officers say 43-year-old Verlin Hamby Jr. slammed into the rear of her car while passing three other vehicles in the same lane. There was minor damage to a car that was passing in the opposite lane. Tennis was the only driver seriously hurt.
