CHP investigates possible fatal crash near Middletown

MIDDLETOWN – The California Highway Patrol is reporting a possible fatal crash near Middletown.


Throughout the morning CHP officers remained on the scene of the crash, which occurred on Butts Canyon Road approximately one mile from Highway 29.


The solo-vehicle collision involved a vehicle that was reported to have been wrapped around a power pole, according to the CHP.


The collision caused the road to be shut down while Pacific Gas & Electric worked to replace the power pole, the CHP reported. Shortly after 7:30 a.m. the road was opened under one-way traffic control.


The CHP did not have additional details on the crash or its victim available during the morning.


Lake County News will update the story as more information becomes available.
