Update: Fatality In Crash On Tuolumne Road

Sponsored by:

Update at 6:10 p.m.: Sadly, a two-vehicle crash on Tuolumne Road in Sonora has resulted in a fatality.

The collision happened around 4:15 p.m. near the Black Oak Road and Woodham Carne Road intersection. The CHP reports that a Toyota pickup with a camper shell and a GMC SUV collided on the roadway. Emergency personnel had to free one driver who was pinned inside his vehicle. Both drivers sustained major injuries, and one was flown from the scene to a Modesto hospital, while the other air ambulance did not take off as the person was pronounced dead.

The westbound lane is blocked, and those heading towards Mono Way may want to find an alternative route, like Soulsbyville Road. The CHP asks the public to avoid the area. Tow crews are on the scene, working to remove the wreckage. There is no estimated time as to when the roadway may be cleared.
