Paradise, CA (June 12, 2021) – On Friday, no one was seriously injured in a sedan-log truck crash on Pentz Road.

Apparently, a log truck and a grey sedan were both going down the hill on The Skyway.
Then, the log truck was about to turn left on Pentz Road, however, the sedan behind it attempted to pass the truck.
As a result, the sedan rear-ended the log truck and it rolled over, landing on its roof.

Meanwhile, the authorities have already re-opened the road.
Officers said there were no reports of major injuries in this accident.
Moreover, there were no reports of any logs that fell from the truck that carried them.
Since you cannot read the intention of the driver in front of you, don’t tailgate.
Make it your practice to always maintain some distance between your vehicle and the one ahead in order to give yourself enough response time should the vehicle ahead make a sudden turn or stop.
