Mono Way Pole Severed By Sonora Driver

Sonora, CA — Kelly Swanson of Sonora has been identified as the driver of a Chevrolet Silverado pickup that severed a power pole and then drove into the Live Oak Music Building early Sunday evening.

CHP Officer Tom Wills states the accident took place at approximately 5:10pm when Swanson, headed westbound on Mono Way, crossed over the center line.

She was reportedly driving-under-the-influence of some type of drug. Upon being transported to Sonora Regional Medical Center with her three year old boy she was arrested.

Crews are just completing the cleanup at this hour. Both lanes are open but they are being controlled.
