Jamestown, CA — CHP Officer Tom Wills has identified 25 year old Andres Garcia of Jamestown as the driver of the 1987 Ford Ranger pickup truck that was involved in a single vehicle accident west of Green Springs Rd. on Hwy 108 early Monday afternoon.
Garcia was westbound when he, for an unknown reason, lost control of his vehicle which hit a curb and overturned landing in the median. Garcia was not wearing a seat belt and was subsequently ejected suffering abrasions and possibly a broken arm. Garcia was flown to Memorial Hospital in Modesto.
Garcia´s passenger, 23 year old Breeanna Thompson, was not seriously injured in the accident.
Wills adds the initial investigation indicates alcohol was not involved. Wills says the accident, which occured under ideal weather conditions, could have been caused by either speeding or inattention.
