GEYSERVILLE, CA (March 22, 2019) – One person was killed and two others were injured following a three-vehicle collision Friday afternoon on Highway 101 at Geyserville Avenue on-ramp.
The fatal collision happened around 2:57 p.m. involving a blue Nissan Versa, a 2016 Honda Civic and a 2004 Toyota Tundra.
