Car Crash Near Samuel P. Taylor State Park Entrance
MARIN COUNTY, California (October 18, 2016) — Three people have died in a crash where a car crashed into a power pole and two trees on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in Lagunitas, according to CBS News and the California Highway Patrol.
The crash took place early Tuesday morning about 12:14 a.m. when the CHP received a call about a car “wrapped around a tree” in a ditch. The crash was near the entrance of Samuel P. Taylor State Park.
Authorities released additional information disclosing that the vehicle had been driven by Chance Maurer, 18, of Novato. As he traveled westbound on Sir Francis Drake Blvd, he suddenly lost control and struck a pole and two trees.
Police officials reported that the vehicle’s top had almost been completely torn off.
Maurer and his two passengers, Lancelot Argall, 18, and Chancellor Argall, 18, all tragically sustained fatal injuries as they were pronounced dead at the scene.
It is uncertain at this time whether or not drugs or alcohol played a role in the incident.
