1:20 a.m., San Andreas - The California Highway Patrol believes Bo Michael Smith, 27, of Manteca, was driving the 2003 Chevy Trailblazer that crashed into a guard rail near the intersection of highways 49 and 12. CHP reported that Smith and his passenger, Robert Juul, 24, of Manteca, were driving south on Highway 49 when Smith failed to yield for a stop sign at Highway 12. The vehicle proceeded across Highway 12 and crashed into a guard rail causing the car to overturn. The men then got out of the vehicle and attempted to walk from the scene before being stopped by CHP officers. Both men sustained minor injuries and were taken to Mark Twain St. Joseph's Hospital. CHP suspects both men were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. CHP charged Smith with suspicion of driving under the influence and reports additional charges may follow including obstructing a police officer, providing false information to a police officer and fleeing the scene of an injury accident.
