Hwy 108 Closed Due To Head On Accident

Sonora, CA — Hwy 108 between Washington St. and Stockton Rd. will remain closed for at least another hour due to a head-on accident earlier this morning.

According to CHP Officer Mike Remmell a westbound silver Ford Mustang driven by 20 year old Courtney Cooper of Soulsbyville (C.N.A. student at Columbia College) crossed over the center line at the Stockton Rd. bridge and collided head on with an eastbound vehicle driven by 41 year old Ruby Rocha of Jamestown. Cooper is a 2006 Summerville High School graduate.

Both women have been life flighted by helicopter to Modesto hospitals with critical injuries. The reason the vehicle crossed the center line has yet to be determined by investigators.

Hwy 108 westbound travelers will be detoured onto Washington St., through Sonora to Stockton Rd. where they can re-enter Hwy 108. Hwy 108 eastbound travelers will be detoured in the opposite direction.
