An accident Sunday night stalled traffic and resulted in major injuries for one driver, while another driver who caused the accident fled the scene, according to a California Highway Patrol news release.

At 7:43 p.m., an unknown vehicle made a sudden turn left into westbound traffic east of the Tower Park Bridge. To avoid a collision, the female driver directly behind the unknown car turned suddenly and began traveling out of control, according to the police report.

The female driver, a 20-year-old woman from Manteca, ended up striking another car that was traveling west, and sustained major injuries. She was transported to San Joaquin General Hospital. The driver of the car she struck was not injured.

The unknown driver who caused the accident fled the scene. CHP officers do not know if alcohol or drugs were factors in the accident.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
