can an o/o keep my paycheck for preventable accident

I took a load @ the last minute to get ld 2 Atlanta from los angeles, during travel i pulled n2 trk stop tired of course, and i had a backing accident.

I exchanged info, took pics and all. after contacting the owner and advising him of situation he claims that he will have to with hold my pay to pay for insurance deductible. Can he do that under California labor law guidelines?

and to boot he didn't add me to insurance to drive for him. I think that's the real issue here but just asking.
