1 Killed, 6 Injured in Twin Bridges Car Crash on Westbound Highway 50

EL DORADO COUNTY, CA (July 28, 2021) – A car crash killed one person and injured several others on Highway 50 in the Twin Bridges community.

According to an article published by The Mountain Democrat, the tragic collision occurred last week on Thursday. Officers reported the wreck on July 22 at around 5 p.m.

The incident began when a 2006 Saturn was driving aggressively and traveling at a high rate of speed west on Highway 50 in Twin Bridges. At the same time, a 2015 Chevrolet was going east.

The Saturn spun out of control after passing other vehicles near Tamarack Pines Road and Sierra-at-Tahoe Road. In the process, the car crossed into the eastbound lane of Highway 50.

The California Highway Patrol said the Saturn went directly into the path of the Chevrolet. The two vehicles ultimately collided, splitting the Saturn into two pieces.
