Calaveras Auto Accident Sends Four To Hospital

Calaveras Auto Accident Sends Four To Hospital 

Four Calaveras County residents landed in the hospital following a Monday morning accident.   According to the CHP, shortly after 8 o’clock, 49-year-old Gary Soria of San Andreas, was headed north on Highway 49 in San Andreas north of Pool Station Road at about 35 miles-per-hour.   Soria told officers he was distracted by an oversized vehicle that was coming in his direction, escorted by CHP units with flashing emergency lights, and failed to notice that the vehicle ahead of him was beginning to slow down. Although he applied his brakes he was unable to stop in time and rear-ended it.  That vehicle was driven by 64-year-old Diane Scronce of San Andreas.  She and her passengers, 66-year-old Rick Scronce, 18-year-old Annie Curtis, and a 17-year-old minor, all of San Andreas, were all transported to Mark Twain Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.   Soria and his passenger, 40-year-old Timothy Fautt of San Andreas, also suffered minor injuries but refused aid at the scene.  The CHP says that neither drugs nor alcohol were considered a factor in the collision.
