ESCALON, CALIFORNIA — Escalon Police Department investigated a non-injury traffic collision that occurred this morning.
The collision was reported about 07:13 this morning on Jackson Street (Highway 120) at David Drive. Escalon Police, Fire, and Paramedics responded to the scene.
It was reported that the brown Chevy pick-up truck, driven by an older male subject was entering Jackson Street from Elizabeth Avenue when the accident occurred. The driver of the grey Nissan Pathfinder was traveling eastbound on Jackson Street when they collided with the front end of the truck.
The impact sent the Nissan Pathfinder straight into the direction of Hula’s outside dining area where it came to rest. Along the way the Nissan took out a roadside sign, a small Hula’s sign, a small fence and a large palm tree. The vehicle finally stopped after smashing into the tables on the patio. Fortunately Hula’s was not open for business at this time of the morning and the patio was clear of patrons.
There were some traffic delays in the area due to the truck and debris in the roadway. Escalon Police along with McDowell and Davis towing services were able to clear the roadway quickly. Traffic soon returned to normal.
