Four escape serious injury in car crash
Four people appear to have escaped serious injury after a two-vehicle crash Sunday afternoon southwest of Williams.
Iveth J. Rivera, 19, of Williams, sustained what the California Highway Patrol described as moderate injuries after a 2008 Dodge Ram pickup truck hit the front passenger door at about 45 mph, the CHP reported.
Rivera was the passenger in a car driven by Tania O. Rios, 18, also of Williams.
Rivera reportedly was taken to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, where she was likely treated and released, a hospital spokesman said. No one by that name was admitted to the hospital.
Rios, an unlicensed driver who the CHP said was learning to drive, was traveling north on East Camp Road and apparently ran a stop sign at Walnut Drive, the CHP reported.
Her 2000 Toyota Camry entered the intersection directly into the path of the westbound pickup driven by Dennis Moore, 63, of Lakeport.
Moore applied his brakes and swerved, but could not avoid the crash, the CHP reported.
Moore was treated at the scene and released, the CHP said.
Rios and Moore’s passenger, Jacolyn Moore, 57, also of Lower Lake, were reportedly taken to Colusa Regional Medical Center, but no information was available.
The accident happened about 4 o’clock.
All four people were wearing seat belts, and alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.
