Calaveras And Amador Counties Border- 1 Person Dead And 4 People Injured Following A Head On Crash
A 95 year old man from San Andreas was fatally injured following a head on crash on Highway 49, south of Sandra Road near the Calaveras and Amador counties border on Monday, June 10, 2019. 4 other people, including 3 children sustained major injuries. The crash occurred around 3:45 pm. The driver of a 2014 Lexus RX 350 reportedly crossed over a double-yellow line into the southbound lane in order to pass a logging truck. The driver of the Lexus was the 95 year old man from San Andreas. He was identified as Thomas Diermier. Sean Vasko, 38, a Plymouth resident, was driving a 2018 GMC Denali along the southbound lane at 55 miles per hour with 3 12-year old passengers. The 2 vehicles reportedly crashed head-on. After the crash, Diermier’s car was caught on fire. However, firefighters were able to extinguish the flames and remove the driver from his vehicle before it became fully engulfed in flames. Diermier died after sustaining injuries following the accident, though. The 4 occupants of the GMC Denali sustained major injuries. They were taken to different hospitals in Sacramento and Jackson so that they could be treated.
