Just minor injuries for the drivers of two cars involved in an accident on Lyons Bald Mountain Road near Hope Lane this morning. Sonora Police officer John Mager says 19-year-old Heather Palmer of Tuolumne City lost control of her car on a corner, and drifted into the oncoming lane. She struck the left rear tire of a car driven by 39-year-old Cheryl Allegri of Sonora. Both cars spun around completely. Palmer’s car overturned and struck an oak tree.
Traffic was blocked for almost an hour and a half while the cars were being removed.
