Crash occurs at Highway 53 and Olympic Drive intersection Sunday

CLEARLAKE – Two drivers escaped serious injury on Sunday when they collided at the intersection of Highway 53 and Olympic Drive in Clearlake.


Clearlake Police officers were dispatched to the scene at approximately 2:21 p.m., according to Officer Lauren Vance.


Vance said a pickup traveling southbound on Highway 53 failed to stop and hit another pickup that was traveling northbound and making a lefthand turn onto Olympic Drive.


She said neither of the drivers involved sustained major injuries.


Due to a high number of collisions at the site, Caltrans installed stop signs at the intersection in February, with a view to installing a traffic signal in 2012, as Lake County News has reported.


There have been some crashes there since the stop signs went in, but Vance said the number of incidents hasn't been high.
