Collision on Highway 299 at Plumas Street in Injures Girl in Burney
BURNEY, CA (August 14, 2019) — A rear-end collision on Highway 299 at Plumas Street Wednesday afternoon left at least one person with injuries.
The California Highway Patrol, Burney Mountain Station deputies, and other emergency personnel responded to the incident at about 5 p.m.
The crash involved a black sedan and a white sedan. The westbound vehicle stopped at a stop sign with a marked crosswalk on Plumas Street. This is to allow two people two cross the roadway. Before the two pedestrians could enter the crosswalk, the other sedan rear-ended the first vehicle.
As a result, debris from car parts and other debris shot across the street, showering the pedestrians. Fortunately, neither of the pedestrians sustained injuries by the flying debris.
The area has a speed limit of 30 mph. However, both vehicles had moderate to heavy damage from the collision.
Ann Johnson of Burney said she and her grandson were standing at the corner of Main Street and Plumas Street. They were waiting to use a marked crosswalk when the accident happened right in front of them.
A young girl who was a passenger in the second sedan immediately opened the passenger door to get out of the vehicle. According to Johnson, the girl was holding her chest and dropped down onto the pavement. Her sister later reported that the girl sustained injuries from the crash.
Both drivers remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation which is ongoing.
