Alcohol Potential Factor in La Barr Meadows Collision

Alcohol was likely the cause in a rear-end collision on Highway 49 near La Barr Meadows Road.  The accident happened during road construction, around 10 o’clock last night. The construction crews were using a pilot car to escort traffic. C-H-P Officer Steve Ingram says a 57 year-old Grass Valley woman was following the pilot car when all the cars came to a stop except one driver.
