Three Injured after San Rafael Fiery Crash on Highway 101

 
SAN RAFAEL, CA (September 20, 2019) – A mother and her two children were hurt in a fiery crash on Highway 101 on Wednesday, September 18.
 
At about 8:20 a.m., the adult driver and two children traveled north in an SUV on Highway 101 near the St. Vincent Drive exit. Then for unknown reasons, the SUV veered out of control, according to the California Highway Patrol.
 
The SUV struck the center divider and sent the vehicle back across the freeway. After that, it crashed with another car before veering off the right shoulder. Then it rolled down a steep embankment and caught fire, CHP Officer Andrew Barclay stated.
 
Novato and Marinwood firefighters responded to assist. The fire quickly extinguished, Barclay stated.
 
Three people received treatments and paramedics transported them to area hospitals with injuries, Novato fire Capt. Don Fletcher said.
 
Three good Samaritans helped extricate the female driver and her two children, believed to be a 3-year-old boy and 6-year-old girl, from the burning car, Barclay said.
 
Ambulances transported the girl to MarinHealth Medical Center and the boy to University of California at San Francisco Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. The girl was later airlifted to the Oakland hospital for treatment. Officers described both children’s injuries as life-threatening, Barclay stated.
 
A medically equipped CHP helicopter transported the driver to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek.
 
The driver of the other car that was struck in its back end did not sustain injuries, Barclay said.
