Thursday morning crash injures Kelseyville man

KELSEYVILLE – A Kelseyville man suffered major injuries when his vehicle collided with a tree Thursday morning.


Tommy Merrill, 51, sustained major injuries which were not life-threatening in the crash, which occurred at 8:05 a.m. Thursday, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Adam Garcia.


Merrill was driving his 1993 Suzuki Sidekick eastbound on Red Hills Road west of Highway 29, Garcia reported, when, for an unknown reason, Merrill's vehicle drifted off the straight roadway and struck a tree.


Garcia said Merrill, who was alone in the vehicle, was transported to Sutter Lake Side Hospital by

Kelseyville Fire Ambulance.


Merrill was wearing his seat belt when the collision occurred, said Garcia.


CHP reminds drivers to please buckle up when driving. It not only saves lives but is focus of the CHP's “Click it or Ticket” campaign.


CHP Officer Greg Baxter is investigating the incident, Garcia said.
