Besides Thorson’s vehicle and the milk truck, two other vehicles also crashed into the scene. CHP believe Thorson was speeding at the time of the accident.

When Thorson crashed, his vehicle erupted into flames. He reportedly suffered broken bones in the accident.

He is expected to survive. CHP also said that Thorson was drowsy at the time of the crash.

They believe his drowsiness may have contributed to the crash.

The authorities did not release any updated on the milk truck driver, or the conditions of the other parties in the two other vehicles. A passenger, according to CHP, in the milk truck suffered minor injuries.

Thorson maintains his racing operation in Sacramento, California.
