Three people hurt in Tuesday crash

GLENHAVEN – A Tuesday afternoon crash injured a Yuba City couple and an Upper Lake man.


Stephen Raetz, 67, his wife Jackie, 62, and Samuel Miller, 69, all sustained injuries in the head-on collision which took place just after 2 p.m. Tuesday, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Adam Garcia.


Garcia said Stephen Raetz was driving his 2005 Ford Taurus eastbound on Highway 20 in Glenhaven when his vehicle crossed over the double yellow lines and struck Miller's 1993 Toyota Corolla head-on.


A preliminary investigation indicates that Stephen Raetz may have fallen asleep at the wheel prior to the collision, said Garcia.


Jackie Raetz sustained major injuries which were not life-threatening, said Garcia. She was taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital via REACH air ambulance.


Miller sustained minor to moderate injuries and was taken to Sutter Lakeside Hospital by Northshore Fire ambulance, said Garcia, while Stephen Raetz sustained minor injuries but was not transported.


CHP Officer Efrain Cortez is investigating the collision, Garcia said.
