Traffic collision on Hwy 49--major injuries

   On September 25, 2016 Donald W. O'Brien (36) of San Andreas at approximately 12:15 AM was driving a 2007 Toyota northbound on Hwy 49 north or Springfield Road in the Columbia area.

   O'Brien allowed his vehicle to leave the roadway to the east, overcorrected, causing him to lose control of the vehicle.

   The Toyota crossed the roadway, leaving it on the west shoulder and collided with a sign.

   The Toyota overturned multiple times until it came to rest on the west shoulder.

   As a result of this collision, all three occupants of the Toyota sustained injuries.

   The driver (with major injuries) and Rachel O'Brien (32) (with minor injuries) were transported to Sonora Regional Medical Center with injuries.    A juvenile in the car was also transported to the hospital with major injuries.

O'Brien was  arrested on suspicion of Driving Under the Influence and booked into Tuolumne County Jail.
