Chico, CA – Multi-Vehicle Crash Kills 1 on Hwy 99 Near Gaia Way

Chico, CA (March 26, 2019) – One person was killed in an accident on Highway 99, near Gaia Way, on Monday, March 25th. The accident happened at 12:27 p.m. during a rainstorm.

The crash involved a blue Honda Civic, a red 2001 Toyota 4Runner, and a silver 2017 Dodge pickup truck.

The Honda reportedly lost control in the northbound lane of CA-99 and veered into the southbound lanes. The Honda was then hit by the Toyota 4Runner. The Dodge pickup, which was also going southbound, subsequently hit the Toyota.

The Honda driver died at the scene after sustaining serious injuries. The Toyota driver, a 20-year-old resident of Oroville, was hospitalized after experiencing minor injuries. The Dodge pickup driver, a 41-year-old Red Bluff resident, was also hospitalized with minor injuries.

Highway 99 was closed in both directions until 3:00 p.m.

An investigation into the cause of the crash is underway.

We send our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the deceased. We keep you in our thoughts during this difficult time.

Rainy Highway Conditions

The US Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration reports that approximately 47% of weather-related car accidents occur because of rain (versus snow, ice, and other conditions). Approximately 3,400 people are killed and 357,300 are injured due to rain-related accidents annually.

Winter weather, in most parts of California, means an increase in rain. Since many Californians only experience rainy highway conditions for half the year, it is easy to forget that these conditions require drivers to pay extra attention to the road and adjust their driving techniques if necessary.

No matter the weather, all drivers are required to pay attention to the road, adjust their speed, and keep an eye out for their fellow drivers.
