KELSEYVILLE, CA (March 24, 2020) – A multi-vehicle accident on Monday injured two people on Highway 129 in Kelseyville.
The March 23 collision between three vehicles occurred just before 7:00 p.m. on Highway 29 at Merritt Road, revealed the California Highway Patrol’s Clear Lake Area office.
According to CHP Officer Joel Skeen, Richard Hessing of Kelseyville in a 2005 Hyundai first travelled south on Highway 29.
Skeen added that Hessing was driving at a speed that was unsafe for conditions. He also noted that there was hail on the road.
Meanwhile, Tea Muller from Cloverdale headed north on Highway 29 in a 2014 Hyundai.
At the same time, Lorelei Morris from Bolinas in a 2017 Toyota was also driving in the same path as Muller.
Skeen reported that Hessing then possibly lost control of his car and veered into the path of the two other drivers.

Responders transported both Hessing and Morris to Sutter Lakeside Hospital to receive treatment for their injuries.
