The California Highway Patrol received a report at about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday that a white 1990 Dodge van had collided with a tree on State Route 120, west of Poole Power Plant Road.
According to the CHP, it appears that the driver, John Vincent Barraco, 27 of Fort Myers, Fla. Experienced brake failure as he traveled eastbound on the highway west of Saddle Bag Lake road. Barraco steered his vehicle left across the westbound lanes and attempted to slow down by traveling eastbound on the dirt shoulder of the westbound traffic lanes.
Ultimately, Baracco suffered a broken foot and puncture wounds to his right knee and lower back. His passenger, Kristen Onofria Brush of Del Rey Beach, Fla. Suffered a laceration to her right ear and complained of pain in her right shoulder.
Both parties were transported to Mammoth Hospital for treatment.
Though the two are recovering at Mammoth Hospital, they lost their dog, Achilles, following the collision and hope the local community can help. Achilles is a neutered blonde yellow lab and pit bull terrier mix with a white belly and pink-ish nose. He's approximately 55-60 lbs. He was not wearing a collar at the time of the accident. He responds to Achilles, Mr. Chili and Willie.

Anyone who may have seen the dog is encouraged to contact Lauren anytime at (239) 633-8950.
