A teenager was pinned against a fence after his uncle’s truck rolled into him. CHP Public Information Officer Marc Morrison says the accident happened New Years eve on Auburn Road. The 41 year old driver of a 1995 GMC pickup pulled down his driveway and let his 13 year old nephew out to open the gate. To help the situation the uncle angled his truck using his headlights, so his nephew could see to unlock the gate.
