PASO ROBLES — Antioch resident Goerge Jones, 49, was injured in a single-vehicle accident north of Paso Robles on the morning of Monday, May 7.
Jones was driving his 1995 Lexus LS400 southbound in the No. 1 lane of Highway 101 just south of Wellsona Rd., traveling at 75 miles per hour when he came upon slower traffic and had to veer to the right to avoid a collision. He then lost control of the vehicle and went off the right shoulder after striking a raised asphalt curb. His car overturned going down the embankment, striking a metal culvert and coming to rest on a highway perimeter fence. Cal Fire personnel extricated Jones from the vehicle. He was transported to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center with moderate injuries. No other vehicles were involved.
