New Details On Rollover Crash

Mokelumne Hill, CA — The CHP cites unsafe speed as the reason for a solo rollover wreck on Highway 49 near Mokelumne Hill.  The crash happened just before 2 p.m. Tuesday near Del Orto Road.

The CHP says 19 year-old Jessica Jensen of San Andreas was driving a 1972 Volkswagen Bug northbound on the highway when the car started to fishtail on a curve due to her speed.  Officer Jaime Castillo says, “She struck an embankment and overturned so when our unit arrived on scene the beetle was overturned in a lane blocking traffic.”

Officers directed one-way traffic control for more than an hour as tow crews removed the wreckage.  Jensen was taken to a local hospital suffering minor injuries.  Castillo says neither drugs nor alcohol were a factor in the crash.
