Woman injured in Sunday collision

THE AGE OF THE INJURED WOMAN HAS BEEN CORRECTED. 

 

BLUE LAKES – A Redway woman was injured after she lost control of her vehicle and hit another vehicle Sunday.

Sara Champie, 21, was hospitalized after the crash, which took place t about 6:10 p.m., according to California Highway Patrol Officer Adam Garcia.

Champie was driving a 1997 Nissan Altima eastbound on Highway 20 east of Blue Lakes Road, said Garcia.

The weather was rainy, and a preliminary CHP investigation into the rash's cause indicated that Champie was driving at approximately 65 miles per hour, Garcia reported.

Due to her speed and roadway conditions, Garcia said Champie lost control of the vehicle as she entered a right curve in the road.

The car went into the highway's westbound lane and hit a 2007 GMC Yukon driven by 38-year-old Diane Ogden of El Dorado Hills, said
Garcia.

Garcia said Champie sustained major injuries that were not life-threatening. She was transported to Sutter Lakeside Hospital before later being transferred to UC Davis Medical Center.

Ogden and her passenger, Celina Chouinarg of Elk Grove, were not injured, said Garcia.

CHP Officer Robert Hearn is investigating the incident.

With the rainy season having arrived, Garcia said it's important to remember to take special weather precautions when driving.

He said the CHP is reminding drivers to always give themselves extra time when traveling, increase their following distance and remember to slow down during inclement weather. They also should remember to check their tires and windshield wipers.
