From the California Highway Patrol:
On Friday, May 21, 2021, at approximately 1035 hours, Party #1 was driving Vehicle #1 (Toyota) in a westerly direction from the Burnt Ranch United States Post Office parking-lot located at 10271 State Route 299 west of Hennessey Road. The driver of the Toyota was preparing to make a left turn from the parking-lot and travel east on State Route 299. Party #2 was driving Vehicle #2 (Dodge) west on State Route 299 east of Hennessey Road approaching the Toyota’s location.
For unknown reasons, the driver of the Toyota failed to notice the Dodge approaching from the east. The Toyota entered the westbound and eastbound traffic lanes directly in front of the Dodge’s path of travel. As a result, the front of the Dodge collided into the left front side of the Toyota. After the collision, both vehicles came to rest on their wheels facing in a southerly direction blocking the eastbound traffic lane of State Route 299.
Party #1 was extricated from the Toyota by emergency personnel and sustained major injuries from the collision. Party #1 was transported to Mercy Medical Center for further medical treatment.
Passenger #1 was seated in the middle front seat of the Dodge at the time of the collision. Passenger #1 sustained major injuries and was transported to Mercy Medical Center for further medical treatment. Passenger #2 was seated in the right front seat of the Dodge at the time of the collision. Passenger #2 sustained moderate injuries and was transported to Mad River Hospital for further medical treatment.
