Sonora, CA – The CHP has released new details regarding a crash involving a Caltrans truck on Highway 108 in Sonora on Thursday.
As reported here this morning, the collision happened around 10:30 a.m. on the highway, just east of Via Este Road. While traveling eastbound at nearly 55 mph, 57-year-old David Camara of Sonora was behind the wheel of a 2006 GMC Yukon XL when it smashed into a Caltrans truck.

It smacked into the right side of the 2013 Ford F150 truck driven by Caltrans employee, 65-year-old Alan Roberts of Sonora. The impact sent Camara’s SUV back across the roadway and into a dirt embankment.
