A Sonora man suffered minor injuries after crashing his car into a telephone pole in Columbia on Thursday afternoon.
About 1:30 p.m., Vincent Angelo Corsello, 27, was driving his two-door sedan northbound on Parrotts Ferry Road, according to California Highway Patrol.
A witness told authorities that Corsello appeared to be trying to pass the car in front of him by crossing over the double yellow lines, CHP Officer Jason Austin said.
Corsello lost control and skidded sideways into a telephone pole and trees, Austin said.
Austin said it’s unknown why Corsello lost control.
Corsello was transported by ambulance to Sonora Regional Medical Center with complaints of pain.
