Hollister man sustains major injuries in highway wreck

A 32-year-old Hollister man sustained major injuries in an accident Sunday morning when a semi-truck collided with his car at the intersection of highways 25 and 156, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The driver of the 1995 BMW was transported by Calstar to Regional Medical Center of San Jose. The man was driving with a 12-year-old male passenger, who suffered minor injuries and also was transported to Stanford hospital for treatment.

At about 9:20 a.m. Sunday, the car was stopped on northbound Highway 25 but entered the intersection when the 2004 Freightliner driven by a 38-year-old Fresno man struck the driver’s side of the car. The collision pushed the car east, and it came to rest blocking westbound lanes of Highway 156, according to the CHP.

The truck driver was uninjured. The CHP is continuing its investigation and noted that alcohol or drugs are not believed to be a factor.
