Sonora Accident Leaves 2 Hurt on Highway 108

Both drivers who were injured in a head-on crash in Sonora Friday evening have been identified. 

29-year-old Zachary Bacis along with 37-year-old Mikkel Schwiesow suffered minor injuries following the accident.

CHP reported that the crash occurred at 5:15 p.m. on February 25th on the Highway 108 Bypass.

A Ford Explorer driven by Schwiesow was traveling east when the driver swerved to the south shoulder.

Schwiesow then overcorrected and drifted into oncoming traffic, causing a head-on collision with Baci’s Tow Truck that was pulling a vehicle. 

Bacis complained of arm pain and was treated at the scene.

Schwiesow was transported to Adventist Health Sonora with a bloody nose and chest pain. 

Neither drugs or alcohol were suspected to have played a factor in the accident. 

CHP are actively investigating the incident. 

Head-on collisions are without a doubt the most dangerous types of crashes. They may only account for 2% of accidents, however they make up 10% of all deadly crashes. 

The Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) has found that: 

  • 75% of head-on crashes happen in rural areas
  • They are most common on two-lane highways
  • Failure in negotiating a curve on the road causes 23% of all fatal head-on collisions
  • 58% of head-on collisions result in a fatality
