CHP identifies victim of fatal Monday crash

LAKE COUNTY – A Memorial Day crash along Highway 20 claimed the life of a Sebastopol woman.


Judith Tilt, 72, was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision, which took place on Highway 20 east of Walker Ridge Road at about 2:20 p.m. Monday, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Adam Garcia.


Tilt was riding in a 2002 Lexus RX300 driven by 78-year-old Delores Zeni of Santa Rosa which was hit by a 2001 Ford Escape driven by Debra Curtis, 49, of Suisun City, Garcia said.


Curtis, who was driving eastbound, lost control of her vehicle during a short rain shower, according to Garcia.


Her vehicle spun out around and entered the westbound lane, hitting Zeni's Lexus.


Both Delores Zeni and 79-year-old Robert Zeni, also of Santa Rosa, sustained major injuries and were

flown to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital by REACH air ambulance, Garcia said.


Curtis was flown by CALSTAR air ambulance to Chico's Enloe Hospital where she was treated for major injuries, according to Garcia's report.


The accident shut the highway down for several hours as emergency officials cared for the injured, cleared the roadway and investigated the crash, according to reports from the scene.


Garcia said CHP Officer Dallas Richey is investigating the collision.
