Kelseyville man dies in Friday collision

KELSEYVILLE A Kelseyville man died Sunday after being injured in a crash the previous day.

 

James Lebert, 82, was involved in a crash that occurred just after 7 p.m. April 25 on Hummel Lane in Kelseyville, said California Highway Patrol Officer Steve Tanguay.

 

Tanguay said Lebert was driving his 1988 Volvo 240 DL northbound on Hummel Lane, north of Bell Hill Road, at an unknown speed when the collision occurred.

 

For an unknown reason, Lebert’s vehicle drifted off the pavement to the right, said Tanguay, where the Volvo struck a mailbox post and then continued through a wire fence with wood posts.

 

Lebert’s vehicle continued, out of control, across an open field and then struck a tree, said Tanguay.

 

Tanguay said Kelseyville Fire responded to the scene and had to extricate Lebert, who was then flown by REACH helicopter to Santa Rosa Memorial hospital where he died at 6 a.m. Sunday.

 

CHP Officer Nick Powell is investigating the collision, Tanguay said.
