    I don’t know if it was the same thing but traffic was backed up for miles on each side of the hwy when we drove up early evening around 5 p.m. and there were 2 choppers in the air and one landed on the hwy. We took a dirt frontage road to bypass and couldn’t tell how many cars. Seems late in the day for something that happed at 5 a.m. Maybe another crash?

    This one was 5 am just west of the fruit stand, no traffic stopped for this one. Gave me goose bumps seeing the car. CHP stated one may not make it. I work at the Circle K right there and talk to the CHP all the time when they come in..

    Prayers for the family! The driver from what I was told was the only one wearing a seatbelt & is stable. The passengers unfortunely were not wearing their seatbelts. Both young women were ejected from the vehicle. One of these young ladies is not expected to survive. So sad! Again, my prayers for the young woman’s family.
