Highway 99 Fatal Car Accident in Chico
CHICO, Calif. (Oct. 23, 2018) — Daniel Fenker, 28, died in a collision involving two motorists Tuesday morning on the southbound Highway 99.
The crash took place about 6:41 a.m., near the Cohasset Road off ramp.
1 Dead Highway 99 Crash
One of the vehicles reportedly sideswiped another vehicle prior to the collision. A vehicle went off the roadway and ended up in a ditch leaving one person dead. A driver in a white pickup truck told police the other vehicle side-swiped hers and then went off the roadway and into the ditch. Police are reviewing the evidence to determine if this was in fact what happened and who is liable.
Paramedics responded to check for other injuries, but none were reported in the 911 dispatch.
San Diego Fatal Crash Investigation
A forensic examination of the vehicles involved is underway by police. They will piece together evidence and any witness statements to determine fault. It’s unknown at this time how fast the drivers were going and whether or not one of them violated the right-of-way of the other vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of the vehicles, skid marks, and gouge marks.
We offer our condolences to the family of Daniel Fenker.
