It was reported to the Escalon Police officers on scene that the driver of the white sedan was traveling westbound on Highway 120 before the accident occurred. A couple of witnesses at the scene said the driver was westbound crossing over the tracks when he lost control of the vehicle. They went on to say as soon as the driver cleared the tracks, the vehicle spun out of control crossing the eastbound lane eventually jumping the curb and crashing into a power pole on the northside of Highway 120.

The collision caused major damage to the right side and frame of the vehicle. There was also some damage to the power pole and PG&E was called out to inspect and repair if necessary.

The driver was the sole occupant and he was checked by emergency medical technicians on scene for minor injuries and no one was transported. It appeared no other vehicles were involved in the crash. The airbags in the vehicle did deploy. Speed and possibly a wet, slick roadway may have been the cause of this accident.
