The Honda was then struck by an oncoming 03′ GMC driven by Jose Garcilazo-Campos, 64, of Mendota, forcing the Honda back into eastbound lanes where it was again struck a short while later by a big rig hauling grapes driven by Joel Villalobos-Lemus, 41. Villalobos-Lemus was unable to avoid the collision as the Honda’s lights were off.
The aftermath of the crash left Katia Mojarro with major injuries. She was transported immediately to Community Regional Medical Center.
