Original story posted at 10:50am: Sonora, CA — The Sonora Police Department reports that a vehicle has gone off Stockton Road and into a creek.
There is a heavy law enforcement presence in that area near downtown Sonora, so you will want to avoid Stockton Road if possible. No injuries have been reported at this time. What led to the crash is not immediately known.
