[UPDATE: 4:12 p.m.]Late Night Traffic Fatality in Lake County After Sedan Collides with Parked Pickup Truck

Categories:

In the early morning hours along the Lake County side of State Route 20 tragedy struck when a traffic collision proved fatal.

A review of the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page and the police scanner indicated at approximately 11:55 p.m. first responders were requested to the intersection of SR 20 and 1st Avenue in Lucerne regarding reports of a pickup truck sedan colliding with a parked vehicle pickup truck in the westbound lane..

Initial reports indicated one person had suffered minor injuries and another person suffered major injuries requiring an air ambulance.

By 12:17 a.m., first responders at the scene canceled the air ambulance and informed the dispatch the individual with major injuries had died as a result.

PG&E was requested to the scene because a nearby power pole and guidewire were damaged as a result of the collision.

Our hearts go out to those lost and their families.

UPDATE 4:08 p.m.: We have received images of the collision that contradict the information documented in the CHP log from early this morning. Based on that log, we initially reported a pickup truck collided with a parked vehicle. In fact, a sedan collided with a parked pickup truck. We have updated the body of the article above as well as the article title to reflect these new facts.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
