Jamestown, CA — A Sonora man was arrested for DUI following an accident in which a nine-year-old girl was injured.

The CHP reports that 46-year-old Richard Kennedy was driving on Jamestown Road Thursday night near the Golf Links Road intersection and his vehicle struck an SUV driven by Melissa McDaniel of Jamestown. A nine-year-old female passenger in McDaniel’s vehicle was transported to Sonora Regional Medical Center for moderate injuries.
