Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — 29 year old Fernando Diaz of Biola, CA suffered moderate injuries just before 10pm Monday when he lost control of his 2007 Toyota while traveling northbound on Hwy 49 south of Center St. in Mokelumne Hill.

According to the CHP report Diaz was traveling downhill at an unsafe speed for pulling a trailer. The bouncing trailer caused the Toyota to fishtail. The vehicle subsequently crossed into the southbound lane, descended down a steep embankment and collided with a tree.

Diaz´s two passengers, 24 year old Carlos Sanchez and 24 year old Wilbert Murillo, both of Dinuba, were not injured.

No alcohol was involved and no arrest was made.
