An unidentified female driver was taken to the hospital with what firefighters described as minor injuries after a truck flipped over her vehicle about 5 p.m. Friday on Highway 152 just east of Watsonville Road. Truck driver Leroy Zamaripa was heading back to a Gilroy warehouse after dropping off his load of produce. The driver of a white Volkswaggon Jetta made a U turn and Zamaripa said he tried to avoid the car but couldn’t.

“I could have hit her straight on but I swerved,” he said. “The truck was empty which could be why it flipped.”

The truck landed on its side on the roof of the car. While the car was totaled, the truck did not completely damage the roof.

The road was closed briefly around 6 p.m. as Bracco’s towing removed the vehicles from the westbound lane.
