CHP identifies fatal Sunday crash victim

LUCERNE, Calif. – The California Highway Patrol has identified the Lucerne man who died of injuries he sustained in a rollover pickup crash on Sunday night on the Northshore.

Kenneth Overstreet, 50, was mortally injured in the wreck, which took place on Highway 20 east of Rosemont Drive near Lucerne.

Overstreet – whose identity the CHP released to Lake County News Monday evening – was riding in a 2002 Toyota pickup driven by 24-year-old River Denning of Lucerne when Denning reportedly lost control of the vehicle.

The pickup rolled, fatally injuring Overstreet and leaving Denning with injuries that would later necessitate him being flown by REACH air ambulance to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. CHP said later that Denning suffered minor injuries.

An unidentified woman reportedly gave Overstreet and Denning a ride from the crash scene to the Tower Mart in Lucerne, where paramedics administered first aid to both and unsuccessfully attempted to revive Overstreet, who died of his injuries, as Lake County News has reported.

Further details about the cause of the crash were not available Monday from the CHP.

However, CHP said alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the collision.
