A San Leandro man lost control of his motor home on Sunday, resulting in the driver’s wife being trapped inside the vehicle. CHP Public Information Officer Marc Morrison says the accident happened on North Bloomfield Road.
The 67-year-old man was driving his 1990 motor home up the narrow road when he realized the road was too much for his thirty foot motor home. Officer Morrison says the driver could not turn around and lost his brakes as he approached Edwards Crossing.
The driver’s 64-year-old wife was pinned in the motor home. Firefighters worked for over thirty minutes to free the seriously injured woman. The victim was taken to Sutter Roseville Hospital with injures to the legs and pelvis. The accident remains under investigation.
