Woman injured in freak crash

A 44-year-old woman was hospitalized for minor injuries after a pair of driving mishaps in her Nevada City friend’s driveway Monday, according to police.

Kimberly Masters, who has a Nevada City mailing address, went by ambulance to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, where staff was preparing to release her Monday night.

At 11:40 a.m. at 339 Park Ave. near Pioneer Park, Masters backed her 1984 Volvo into an occupied 1996 Oldsmobile, then bolted forward and got lodged atop a stone wall alongside the driveway, according to Nevada City Police Chief Lou Trovato.

Masters had gone to see a friend who wasn’t there. In the Olds was a teenager who had gone to see the son of Masters’ friend, Trovato said, adding that the teen was uninjured.

The crash remains under investigation.
