San Andreas, CA — The C.H.P. has postively identified 47 year old Steven M. Baca of Stockton as the deceased victim of a single vehicle accident that occured either late Wednesday evening or early Thursday morning.
At 7:50am Thursday a passing motorist noticed a 1992 Toyota on the north side of Hwy 26 west of Dove Creek Lane.
The C.H.P. report indicates that Baca was eastbound at an unknown speed when he apparently veered across the westbound traffic lane, ran off the north edge of the highway and drove through a barb wire fence. The vehicle rolled onto its left side and came to rest against an olive tree.
This marks the 11th fatal collision for 2008 for the jurisdiction of the C.H.P.´s San Andreas office.
