Pickup Overturns in Fatal Crash on Pony Express Trail

POLLOCK PINES, Calif. (Jan. 2, 2019) — The driver of a pickup truck died in a head-on crash with an El Dorado County Transit bus Wednesday in front of 5649 Pony Express Trail, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported at 3:09 p.m. between Gilman Road and Pine Haven Drive. The pickup truck overturned in the collision and was blocking the roadway. The vehicle suffered major front-end damage and was towed. Meanwhile the bus driver suffered minor injuries in the collision. There were no passengers reported on the bus at the time of the crash.

There were few details about what happened, but it appears the pickup truck driver was possibly driving recklessly, according to the CHP report. The crash remains under investigation by police to determine fault.
