MARIPOSA COUNTY, Calif. — A driver suffered major injuries after he was ejected from his vehicle following a single-car accident in Mariposa County on Tuesday.

According to the California Highway Patrol, 40-year-old Will Lord was driving his 2001 Honda southbound on Pendola Garden Road north of Old Toll Road when he lost control of his car and struck an embankment.

Lord was ejected from the car and suffered what are described as "moderate to major injuries."
