LAKEPORT – A Friday night collision outside of Lakeport resulted in a fatality.


The crash occurred at around 9:44 p.m. on Highway 29 just south of the Hopland Grade portion of Highway 175, the California Highway Patrol reported.

A vehicle was reported to have run through the intersection's stoplight and collided with another car, according to the CHP. One of the vehicles was reported to have caught fire after the crash.


Lakeport Fire shut down the roadway at 9:45 p.m., with CHP reported that the road wasn't fully reopened until midnight. In the meantime, traffic had to be rerouted around the crash site.
