Sonora, CA — On Tuesday afternoon Sonora police officers were dispatched to a report of a vehicle accident in the Sonora High School parking lot.
A 2000 Mercury Mountaineer had flown off an elevated ramp and collided with a parked 1986 GMC van which in turn rolled onto a parked 1997 Honda.
The 16-year-old unidentified passenger in the Mercury told officers that the vehicle belonged to his father, and he had allowed an unlicensed 15-year-old friend to drive it. The 15-year-old told officers that he was showing off in the parking lot and lost control of the vehicle.
The 16-year-old passenger complained of pain to his shoulder but refused medical attention.
