Drivers uninjured in Friday Lakeport crash

LAKEPORT – A three-vehicle accident that shut down part of 11th Street Friday resulted in only minor injuries for the drivers involved.

Lakeport Police Officer Brad Rasmussen said the accident occurred at 1 p.m. Friday in the 1200 block of 11th Street.

A Ford Thunderbird heading westbound had stopped and was waiting to make a left turn off of the street, Rasmussen said, when it was rear-ended by an Oldsmobile sedan, also traveling westbound on 11th.

The collision pushed the Thunderbird into the eastbound traffic lane, Rasmussen reported, where it was hit by a third vehicle, a Buick sedan.

All three drivers were local women, said Rasmussen, and all were wearing seat belts. He said all three suffered only very minor injuries, including scratches and complaints of pain, and all declined medical attention at the scene.

The Oldsmobile sustained major damage, while both the Thunderbird and Buick were moderately damaged, Rasmussen said. All three had to be towed from the scene.

The driver of the Oldsmobile was found to be at fault for traveling at a speed that was unsafe for conditions, Rasmussen said.
