Woman breaks ankle in accident south of Oakdale

A woman was taken by ambulance to Oak Valley Hospital for a broken ankle after a 7:15 a.m. wreck on Albers Road south of Oakdale, highway patrol officials said.

The woman’s name was not immediately available.

The California Highway Patrol suspects that she was speeding southbound in the fast lane on Albers Road at the same time a northbound feed truck turned left into a ranch, officer Tom Killian said.

He said at the last minute, she saw the feed truck crossing the road, tried to stop, lost control and ended up heading across the slow lane to the shoulder and hitting the feed truck. The truck driver wasn’t injured, Killian said.
