Officials give updates on young crash victims

LAKE COUNTY – Two children injured in recent vehicle-related incidents appear to be doing OK, officials reported Tuesday.


Ten-year-old Jacquelyn Newton of Seaside, who was visiting Konocti Harbor Resort and Spa with her family, was hit Saturday by a pickup truck driven by 35-year-old Dennis Olson of Kelseyville, as Lake County News reported.


A UC Davis Medical Center official told Lake County News on Tuesday that the girl was in good condition.


California Highway Patrol Officer Josh Dye said the child suffered a partially collapsed lung, right leg fracture, and lacerations to her liver and spleen laceration as a result of the collision.


CHP arrested Olson on charges including hit and run and driving under the influence causing bodily injury.


On Monday evening, an 8-year-old Lower Lake boy also was flown to UC Davis Medical Center after he had a collision with a pickup, according to CHP Officer Mike Humble, who did not have the boy's name.


Humble said the boy, who was riding a motorcycle near his home on Riata Road, collided with a pickup truck pulling a horse trailer driven by Annette Jean Holley, 44, of Lower Lake.


“It appears that he's a fault,” said Humble, who did not have further information on the particulars of the incident.


The boy suffered a cut to his face and complained of abdominal pain but who was otherwise OK, Humble said.
