1 Dead in Chico Crash on Highway 99 and Cohasset Road
CHICO, CA (September 22, 2021) – Tuesday morning, a woman died in an auto accident on Highway 99 and Cohasset Road.
The incident occurred at 7:55 a.m. when a woman drove a 2006 white Toyota Scion. She traveled north on Highway 99, south of Cohasset Road at highway speeds.
Meanwhile, a white panel van driver traveled behind the woman on the highway. Witnesses confirmed that the van driver traveled very close to the Toyota in the first lane.
Then, the van changed lanes to pass the woman before reverting into lane one, directly in front of the Toyota.
Afterward, the woman veered to the right due to the minimal clearance between the two vehicles. However, she lost control and left the road on the right side of Highway 99. Eventually, she struck a tree before overturning it.
As a result, responders declared the woman dead at the scene.
Authorities described the van as a white panel van with no side windows and with paper plates.
Witnesses also said that they noticed medical supplies through the large rear window.
Furthermore, the authorities urged anyone with information about the incident to call CHP Chico.
Sweet Lawyers extends our condolences to the family and community of the victim.
