Upper Lake man injured in collision

UKIAH – An Upper Lake man suffered some slight injuries as the result of a three-vehicle collision that occurred in Ukiah on Wednesday.


George Canovas, 50, was treated at Ukiah Valley Medical Center for a complaint of neck and shoulder pain, according to the California Highway Patrol's Ukiah office.


Canovas, along with 30-year-old Travis Harrel of Ukiah, was riding in a 1998 Plymouth Voyager driven by Ukiah resident Steven Berry, 51, when the crash occurred on Highway 101 at the N. State Street ramp at 4:45 p.m., the CHP reported.


While merging onto northbound Highway 101 from N. State Street, 83-year-old Ralph Olson of Redwood Valley slowed his 2003 Pontiac Grand Am to move into traffic, according to the CHP.


Berry, who was behind Olson, came to a quick stop to avoid hitting the Grand Am, the report noted.


The CHP said Richard Van Buren of Fort Bragg was behind Berry's vehicle in a 2005 Ford Expedition. He was looking over his shoulder at oncoming traffic and collided with the rear of Berry's Voyager. The collision caused the front of Berry's vehicle to hit the back of Olson's.


Besides Canovas, no injuries were reported. The CHP said all of the drivers and passengers were wearing their safety belts.
