No injuries reported in Wednesday crash

THE TYPO ON THE HIGHWAY NUMBER HAS BEEN CORRECTED.

 

LOWER LAKE, Calif. – A crash that blocked Highway 29 for several hours on Wednesday resulted in no injuries to the drivers involved.


The crash occurred at 8:20 a.m. Wednesday just north of Diener Drive, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Steve Tanguay.


Donald Secord, 55, of Lakeport was driving a 2006 International Suburban Propane truck southbound, with Manuel de Jusus Calvo Santiz of Clearlake driving his 1997 Honda Civic northbound, according to the report.


For an unknown reason, Santiz lost control of the Honda and it began to drift from side to side. Tanguay said it then veered to the left and crossed over the solid double yellow lines, hitting the left rear tires of the propane truck, breaking the rear axle.


Both vehicles spun out of control and the Honda went off of the road to the west, with the propane truck came to rest blocking the southbound lane of traffic, he said.


The roadway was blocked for several hours with one way traffic control until the propane truck could be moved, Tanguay reported.


There were no injuries in this collision and alcohol or drugs are not considered factors, he said.


Tanguay said Santiz was placed under arrest for driving without a driver's license.


The collision is being investigated by CHP Officer Brian Engle.
