Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — Saturday afternoon at 3:25 Kary Griffith was driving in the southbound lane of Rock Creek Rd. when she failed to negotiate a right to left curve.

Griffith´s vehicle veered sharply to the left and off the roadway. The 1999 Volkswagen collided with the east shoulder of the road, a barbed wire fence, a small dirt mound and finally flipped over onto the hood and collided with the ground. Griffith only suffered minor injuries and was treated at Sonora Regional Medical Center.

According to the C.H.P. report, the 16 year old Copperopolis teen was talking on her cell phone.
