Saturday collision results in one death

THIS STORY HAS BEEN CORRECTED BASED ON A REPORT FROM THE CHP. THE CAR'S DRIVER WAS NOT EJECTED AS THE LOGS HAD APPEARED TO INDICATE.  

 

LAKEPORT – A Saturday afternoon collision between a motorcycle and a vehicle has claimed one life.


The California Highway Patrol's Ukiah Dispatch Center confirmed Saturday evening that one person died as a result of the crash, which was reported at 1:33 p.m. on Highway 20 near Scotts Valley Road.


The CHP incident logs reported that a motorcycle collided with a dark-colored vehicle, with the vehicle going off the roadway and into the bushes.


At the same time, the motorcycle went into the lake, with the male rider down in the roadway, according to the logs. The crash blocked both lanes of traffic.


A caller reported to the CHP that an off-duty fireman and a nurse were doing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on one of the accident victims who, nearly 45 minutes later, had not regained consciousness.


The CHP reported Saturday night that a report on the accident had not yet been completed, and the CHP dispatcher did not have information on which one of the victims – the motorcycle rider of the vehicle's driver – had died.


The victim's name also was not available as of Saturday evening.


With the roads wet from a steady rain on Saturday, the CHP reported a number of non-injury collisions throughout the day along Highway 20.
