UPDATE:

Plymouth resident Marcus Bridgeman, 19, has been identified as the driver of the Ford in the story below. The CHP said  49-year-old Delhi resident Angel Martinez was the driver of the Toyota.

Sunday evening around 9 p.m, two vehicles collided at the intersection of Highway 88 and Highway 49 in Martell.  The driver of a Ford Focus was briefly pinned in when a Toyota Tundra pickup T-boned his vehicle at the intersection. 

Units from Jackson Fire and CalFire were on scene a short time after the call came in and began immediately working on extracting the driver from the Ford. That driver was extracted from the vehicle and taken to Sutter Amador for evaluation.

All the passengers of the pickup truck refused medical services and were attempting to find a way to continue on to their final destination.

CHP on scene had conflicting statements from drivers and witnesses and were continuing their investigation into the cause of the crash.

Though the Escort was seriously damaged, the new airbag technology most likely reduced the injuries to the driver.
