Michael D. Clark Lost His Life Last Night in Hwy 49 Big Rig Collision

Mokelumne Hill, CA...The sad notifications have been made and CHP has released that it was Michael D. Clark, 42 from Sacramento who last his life last night in a tragic big rig collision in the corners north of Mokelumne Hill approaching the river. At about 8:30pm Mr. Clark was operating a combination commercial vehicle consisting of a truck tractor and it's two trailers, hauling asphalt from Carson Hill Rock Products in Angels Camp to a highway paving project on Hwy 88 in Amador County. He was traveling northbound on Hwy 49, north of Mokelumne Hill descending a grade towards the North Fork Mokelumne River Bridge. He reached a speed of over 40 mph, which was too fast for the truck he was driving on the steep curved roadway.





He lost control of the truck which ran up an embankment along the east roadway edge. As the truck tractor and one trailer started to overturn back onto the roadway the driver came out of the cab and was struck by the trailer as it overturned onto it's left side causing the driver to suffer fatal injuries.

Hwy 49 had to be closed from Mokelumne Hill to Amador County for 5 1/2 hours while the collision was being investigated and the spilled asphalt was being removed from the roadway.

From all of us at ThePineTree.net our thoughts and prayers are with the driver's family and friends and also the emergency personnel who had to work the incident.

RIP. Big Rigs need to be slowed to 30mph max in that stretch of road. How many accidents on that area have resulted in serious injury or death? To many.

A seat belt would have saved his life.

Terrible waste of precious life.

Prayers for him and his family.

    Too many deaths due to not wearing a seatbelt. Vehicles have them please wear them.
