LAKEPORT – A three-vehicle collision in Lakeport late Friday morning sent one person to the hospital and resulted in traffic being diverted around the scene for an hour.

Shortly after 11 a.m. the crash at Forbes and 11th was reported. Within minutes paramedics, police and a handful of Lakeport city employees arrived on scene, the latter group taking up positions around the scene to offer traffic control.

Traffic was closed one block south and one block north of 11th Street, as well as one block east and west at Forbes. A large amount of debris from all three vehicles was scattered across the intersection at 11th and Forbes St.

A white Buick Regal was driving north on Forbes and witnesses said it didn't stop at a stop sign before entering the intersection and colliding with a gray mid-1970s Chevy pickup. The pickup then collided heat-on with a GMC pickup traveling west on 11th.


Both the Buick and the Chevy were heavily damaged.

The driver of the Chevy pickup sustained injuries and was transported to the hospital.

The driver of the Buick was examined at the scene by medical personnel and appeared shaken but not in need of immediate care.
