LAKEPORT, California (May 30, 2014) – Two pickup trucks collided in a head-on car accident Friday morning on California Highway 29 at Highland Springs Road, according to a California Highway Patrol dispatch report.
About 12:00 p.m., CHP officers responded to the collision between the drivers of a white Toyota pickup truck and a green Dodge pickup truck. One of the parties involved suffered a head injury in the crash and the report indicated that someone was not wearing a seatbelt in the vehicle. Paramedics responded to the crash with at least one ambulance to transport the injured motorist to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The report stated that animal control was contacted, but did not elaborate on why. As a result of the crash, debris and oil was spilled in the roadway. Both vehicles required tow trucks to remove them from the scene of the crash.
“Those involved in this crash will hopefully get adequate medical care to help them recover – especially in the case of the person who suffered a head injury,” said Attorney James Johnson. “Head injuries can require significant on-going treatment and sometimes people have ongoing issues ranging from memory loss to partial impairment.”
