Weather Contributes to a Number of Collisions

As expected, a number of weather related collisions during the storm. Early in the day a couple of spin-outs as cars lost traction on rain soaked roadways and some localized flooding causing concerns on Highway 49. Also a mechanical problem caused a rollover non-injury accident on Highway 20.
CHP Officer Greg Tassone says later in the evening there was an accident on northbound Highway 49 at McKnight Way.

Tassone says fire personnel were initially dispatched because of the rollover report but were canceled once CHP arrived.

It was determined there was no collision and no injuries, so CHP assisted the man to get the vehicle back on the road and on his way.

Around 1:30 in the morning the first snow related incident on Highway 20 near Lowell Hill Road.

Because the woman was not sure of her location, CHP responded from both directions and Cal Trans was contacted to assist.

No injuries involved with that incident.

And then around 2:30 an accident in a windy section of Dog Barr Road near Cherry Drive.

The CHP contacted a two truck to assist with removing the vehicle.
It appears excessive speed along with wet conditions contributed to the collision.
