    This happend right by my house.

  • From tire tracks in the grass, it appeared to my inexperienced eye that the pickup truck started onto the offramp from southbound 101 to School Rd but for some reason it drifted left into the grass “gore area” for perhaps 150-200 feet, struck a tree and bounced to the left a short distance down a slope. Major front-end damage to the truck, and the driver was taken by ambulance to the hospital with “minor” injuries per the CHP Log.
