Sonora, CA — A 76 year old Sonora woman was killed in a rollover accident on Hwy 49 at Shaws Flat Rd. Friday evening.

The victim was unresponsive when emergency officials arrived on scene, and she was later pronounced dead at Sonora Regional Medical Center.

The name of the victim is not being released as officials are still notifying family members.

The accident was reported at 9:06pm. Hwy 49 was closed down for over an hour.
