LAKEPORT – There were no serious injuries in a single-vehicle crash that occurred on Highway 29 Wednesday afternoon.

The crash happened around 2 p.m. north of Mockingbird Lane.

Witnesses at the scene said the car, driven by a young woman with a male passenger, was traveling south on Highway 29 when, on a soft curve, it crossed over into the northbound lane, narrowly missing a northbound car.

The female driver tried to correct the vehicle's path but lost control and spun, hitting the embankment and going up into the air and nearly overturning.

Fire personnel and California Highway Patrol responded to the scene.

The air bags in the vehicle did not deploy but neither the driver nor passenger were reported at the scene to be seriously injured.
