2 CHP Officers Hurt in Ukiah Car Accident

 
UKIAH, CA (May 27, 2019) – Two CHP officers sustained injuries in a collision with a pickup truck on Highway 101 on May 23.
 
CHP officers McKnight and Haddad traveled north on Highway 101 in a 2016 Dodge Charger near Henry Station Road about 4:00 p.m. May 23. However, McKnight, the driver, noticed a vehicle heading south at “a high rate of speed.” McKnight turned on the vehicle’s emergency lights and slowed as he tried to make a U-turn.
 
Upon slowing down, the vehicle traveling behind it, a 39-year-old Upper Lake man driving a 2000 GMC 2500 pickup hit the officers’ vehicle. Even if the pickup driver saw that the CHP vehicle slowed down, he still traveled too fast and too close.
 
As a result, the two officers sustained moderate injuries. Meanwhile, the pickup driver sustained other injuries.
 
Authorities ruled out drugs or alcohol as a factor in the collision. The CHP is still investigating the collision.
 
Habits like distracted driving, speeding and DUI can lead to road accidents. Such habits are causes of disastrous incidents involving major injuries, damage and deaths. That is why it is important to drive defensively/abide by all driving laws to ensure your safety and the safety of surrounding vehicles, motorists, and pedestrians.
