GOLDEN VALLEY - A 35-year-old woman from Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, escaped injury when the Ford Ranger pickup truck she was driving while towing a Ford Taurus careened off the roadway and crashed, ending up in the ditch area just north of the highway.

Golden Valley Fire District firefighters from Station 12, along with GVFD Duty Officer Capt. Dave Martin, responded to the accident at 10:49 a.m. Thursday at Mile Marker 10 on Highway 68.

According to civilian witnesses and the female driver of the Ford Ranger, she was traveling west at about 55 mph in the slow lane when the vehicle she was towing on a dolly started fishtailing and she lost control.

When the truck and car slid into the ditch, the Ford Taurus flipped over, but the pickup remained in the upright position.

According to fire district personnel at the accident scene, the lone occupant of the truck was not injured and declined medical treatment.
