13 Aug. 2015, at approx. 12:29 pm, emergency personnel responded to the 200 block of S. Washington Street for a reported vehicle vs. bicyclist accident.

It was determined June St. Pierre, 76 of Sonora, was northbound on S. Washington Street in a Toyota SUV. As she slowed to prepare to park on the east side of S. Washington Street, Susan Gambaro, 60 of Sonora, rode her bicycle into the back of St. Pierre’s Toyota. The impact ejected Gambaro from her bicycle and onto the pavement.

Gambaro suffered minor abrasions from striking the pavement. She was transported to Sonora Regional Medical Center via ambulance for precautionary measures. Gambaro was wearing a bicycle helmet at the time of the collision, which saved her from suffering a severe head injury.
