Major Injuries for Copperopolis & New Zealand Residents in Head on Collision

Jamestown, CA...Edward Kalen was driving a 2014 Chevy van westbound SR-120 on the James E. Roberts Memorial Bridge at 50-55 mph. James Sayer was driving a 2012 Dodge Caravan eastbound SR-120, west of the James E. Roberts Memorial Bridge. Sayer had stopped at the Don Pedro Lake Vista Point and was reentering SR-120 to travel eastbound. Sayer is used ot driving on the opposite side of the roadway and turned left from the vista point into the westbound lane. Wayer continued to travel eastbound in the westbound lane and was approaching the James E. Roberts Memorial Bridge. As Kalen rounded a curve near the west end of the bridge, he came into Sayer's view. Sayer attempted to swerve to the left as Kalen attempted to swerve to the right. The vehicles were too close and the evasive actions by the drivers did not prevent the front of the Dodge from colliding with the front of the Chevy.

Kalen was pinned into the driver's seat of the Chevy and had to be extricated by fire personnel. Sayer and his passengers were able to self extricate prior to CHP arrival. Both drivers and the two passengers were flown by air ambulance to local hospitals for treatment.

DUI is not suspected in this collision.

        What a small, silly world you live in. Most of us appreciate that visitors are an important part of our economy. Prayers for all and can't help but say an extra one for the small child who must have been terrified.

    Terribly sad for all involved. Praying for recovery for them. How hard to have a bad accident in a foreign land.
