Several vehicles involved in Friday accident


BLUE LAKES – A multi-vehicle traffic collision that blocked Highway 20 for nearly an hour Friday resulted in major injuries for the individuals involved.

The accident was reported to the California Highway Patrol at 3:39 p.m., according to CHP logs. It occurred on Highway 20 near Le Trianon Resort at Blue Lakes.

A motorcycle and two vehicles – a black Hyundai Elantra and a silver Chevy S-10 pickup – were involved. The CHP reported that one of the vehicles was flipped onto its roof and there were accident victims in the roadway.

It took nearly took an hour to clear the accident scene in order to reopen the highway, the CHP reported, with all of the vehicles being towed.

There were major injuries reported to the accident victims, but no further information was available from the CHP Friday evening about how many people were involved or the severity of their injuries.
