Icy conditions contributed to the downfall of a 1971 Volkswagon Beetle Monday night. A Pioneer man was driving eastbound on Hwy 88 west of Carson Drive at about 35 – 40 mph – according to the Highway Patrol report, too fast for the icy roadway. The driver lost control of his car and began sliding back and forth over both lanes. Ultimately, the VW Bug hit the ditch and rolled onto its side. The CHP report says the driver complained of pain to his shoulder and back – he was taken to SutterAmador Hospital for treatment. The Bug looks to have suffered moderate injuries as well.
