Car slams into tanker on Fairview Road

Fairview Road was shut down in both directions Monday morning

A car slammed into an 18-wheel tanker truck Monday morning, sending the Ford Mustang’s driver to the hospital with injuries.

The accident happened shortly before 10 a.m. in northern San Benito County at the intersection of Fairview and Orchard roads, just southeast of Highway 156. The truck was turning left off Orchard Road when it was struck by a black Mustang, smashing the front end of the car.

Responders stabilized the victim, who sustained lacerations to her face, before she was transported by ambulance to the Hollister Municipal Airport with plans to have her airlifted out of county.

The driver of the truck, with a business called CRT out of Hollister, was uninjured in the accident.
