Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — Two Mother Lode men are recovering from their injuries after a multiple vehicle accident Tuesday.

The Highway Patrol says 18 year old Richard Hager Jr. was driving in the southbound lane of Highway 49 near the Campo Seco Turnpike when due to fatigue; he traveled into the oncoming lane.

46 year old Patricia Codiroli saw Hager enter her lane and swerved to avoid a collision; however Hager´s vehicle still hit her.

Reports indicate 20 year old Daniel Winford also swerved to avoid the accident but was unsuccessful.

Windford´s jeep then overturned and came to rest on its right side blocking traffic.
