Lucerne was the site of one of the latest injurious crashes along California roadways.
It happened shortly after 7 pm last night. A pickup truck was reportedly traveling down Highway 20 at an undisclosed speed. When the vehicle reached the area west of Foothill Drive, it rolled over for reasons that have yet to be made known. The vehicle came to a stop on its side right in the path of vehicles going east down the freeway. Not long after that, the entire highway had to be shut down as a result of the single vehicle crash.
Northshore Fire Protection responded to the scene to assist the persons involved in the accident. They found two people standing outside the wrecked vehicle. One individual had to be taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital to be treated for what were described as major injuries. That person was transported via ambulance to a landing zone in Lucerne Harbor Park, where a helicopter made the second leg of the trip. Another injured person sought assistance at Sutter Lakeside Hospital.
The California Highway Patrol reported on the incident. Firefighters were out of the area shortly after 8 pm, when the highway could be opened back up.
I wish all involved the best of luck with their recovery as a Burlingame car accident lawyer. Single automobile wrecks can be just as devastating as any other crash under certain circumstances. As a personal injury attorney in Burlingame, I encourage everyone to drive carefully even when they’re alone on the highway.
