No Injuries From Wild Ride

Mountain Ranch, CA – A Mountain Ranch man was not injured when his truck hit a shed and chicken coop.


The CHP says 78-year-old John Horner was driving a 1982 Amgen truck and pulling trailer along Fricot City Road last night. The truck slipped into neutral while going down a hill near Sheep Ranch Road and Horner lost control of the vehicle.


The truck went across an open field and first struck a tree. Horner then re-entered Sheep Ranch Road, went off the road again, and traveled through a wire fence on private property. The truck slammed into a shed and then a chicken coop, causing the trailer to overturn. The shed started on fire, and many of the contents inside the building were damaged.


Horner reported no injuries. The accident occurred at 5:40pm on Monday.
