CHP Officer Involved in Deadly Collision
A statement released by CHP said at 10:56 p.m., a female officer from the Amador area office was driving west on Highway 16 near Welsh Pond Road when she noticed a speeding vehicle in the opposite direction.
The 49-year-old officer was about to make a turn in an attempt to chase that car when she failed to see a 2004 Toyota Camry ahead that was also going west. The patrol vehicle and the Camry collided.
The Camry was then pushed into the opposite lane where it crashed into an eastbound 2005 Toyota Matrix. Its driver, identified by the Amador County Coroner as Alice Suzanne Goudie, died at the scene.
Meanwhile, the motorist in the Matrix and the CHP officer were both taken to the hospital with injuries described as moderate.
The incident remains under investigation.
