slide13.pngA notable accident occurred on westbound 88 near Kirkwood. According to CHP reports, a Banta, California resident was driving his 2005 Ford Expedition at an unsafe speed for the slippery roadway surface. He lost control of his vehicle and began to slide out of control. The vehicle then proceeded across the westbound lane and through an open area in the snow bank. The vehicle rolled over on its roof and proceeded to “slide like a sled” approximately 100 to 150 feet through trees and forest. The vehicle came to an abrupt stop after striking a large tree. It was necessary to use a heavy tow truck to retrieve the vehicle from its resting place. Luckily, no injuries were reported, but either way—a close call.
