Early morning crash injures Kelseyville man

KELSEYVILLE – A Kelseyville man believed to have been driving under the influence suffered major injuries early Monday when his vehicle hit an embankment.

Anthony C. Lynnott, 19, was injured in the collision, which took place at approximately 2:14 a.m. on Soda Bay Road, according to a report from California Highway Patrol Officer Kevin Domby.

Lynnott was driving his Chevy Yukon westbound along Soda Bay Road east of Clark Drive at an unknown speed when he lost control of the vehicle, Domby reported.

The Yukon crossed into the opposing lane, left the south road edge and collided with an uphill embankment, according to Domby.

When the vehicle rolled over, Lynnott – who Domby said wasn't wearing his seat belt – was ejected onto the roadway.

Domby said the Yukon landed on its wheels, continued toward the road's north edge and hit a guardrail before coming to rest.

Lynnott – who suffered a broken pelvis in the crash – was arrested for driving under the influence before emergency responders flew him to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.

CHP Officer Robert Hearn is investigating the collision, Domby reported.
