HEALDSBURG, California (August 10, 2016) — Robert Hughes, 41, of Vacaville died and several others were injured in a multi-vehicle crash on Alexander Valley Road at West Soda Rock Lane, a California Highway Patrol report said.
The crash took place about 9:55 a.m. this morning between a black 2012 GMC Yukon, a gray 2012 Kia SUV and a gray Honda Accord sedan. The vehicles collided on the Russian River Bridge and all three of them suffered major damage.
Paramedics responded transported a seriously injured woman identified as Marie Bolkan, 41, of Woodland to Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries.
James Brothers of Indiana and his passenger were driving the 2012 GMC Yukon and Brothers told authorities he had to swerve to avoid a collision with the Honda Accord driven by Hughes which was coming at him straight on. The Yukon then sideswiped one of the vehicles.
The crash is under investigation by police to determine liability.
