Jamestown, Ca — Two were injured following a Wednesday night vehicle accident on Hwy 108/120 at O´Byrnes Ferry Rd.
According to the CHP, 22 year old Cassandra Romero of Colfax was traveling south on O´Byrnes Ferry and failed to yield the right of way to a west bound water truck as she entered Hwy 108/120. The truck´s driver, 56 year old Walter Ogden of Oakdale, swerved to the left.
The CHP reports that the the maneuver made by Ogden likely saved Romero´s life. When the truck swerved, the front of the truck impacted the left front of the sedan instead of the driver´s door. Romero´s 1998 Audi was knocked off the road and traveled down an embankment. Ogden´s water truck came to a rest in a dirt/grass field.
Romero suffered what was described as minor injuries. Ogden suffered minor to moderate injuries.
