After crawling to the shoulder of the road, several passers-by stopped to help. Munkelt, whose clients include former Nevada County Supervisor Terry Lamphier, two men accused in a beating death on Banner Mountain, and the ‘Yes on S’ medical marijuana initiative, was taken by ambulance to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash, and drugs or alcohol do not seem to be a factor.
