The Sonora Police Department reports that it happened at 11:10am along Stockton Road near the J.S. West building. The SPD says that vehicles were stopped in traffic because CALTRANS was doing some road maintenance.

The Police Department reports that Sprague was traveling at around 30 mph. Other vehicles involved included a Toyota pickup truck driven by Nola Pettitt, a Cadillac Eldorado driven by Irene Garcia, and a Subaru Legacy driven by Bryan Payne.
All of the vehicles involved had major damage. Traffic was slow-and-go for about a half-an-hour.
