CLEARLAKE OAKS (November 10, 2016)- According to Lake County News, a deadly DUI head-on collision left a woman with fatal injuries and another woman with serious injuries Tuesday afternoon in Lake County.
At about 12:17 p.m., Raymondo Meza, 55, of Chico, was the driver of an older Chevy pickup who had been headed eastbound on Highway 20. For unknown reasons, Meza allowed his vehicle to drift over into westbound lanes directly into a 2016 Honda Civic.
The driver of the Civic identified as Erika Kleit, 45, of Weed, California, sadly did not survive the collision as she tragically was pronounced deceased at the crash site.
Both Meza and his female passenger sustained major injuries and were transported to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.
After toxicology tests were performed, police officials determined that Meza had been driving under the influence as he will face charges.
The staff members of Johnson Attorneys Group thoughts and prayers are with Ms. Erika Kleit and the injured woman at this time.
