A Minden Nevada woman was seriously injured Friday morning on Hwy 88 east of Plasse’s Resort. According to the California Highway Patrol, the Minden woman lost control of her Ford F-250 pick-up truck on the icy highway, slid across both lanes and hit a tractor trailer truck head on. After impact with the semi, the pick-up came to a stop blocking both lanes of the highway. Another semi approached the accident, attempted to slow and began sliding on the slick roadway. That driver was able to steer past the first semi but struck the pick-up broadside. The Minden woman was flown to Reno with major injuries. The first semi driver suffered moderate injuries but sought his own aid. The second semi driver was uninjured. On Sunday morning, a 22-year-old Linden man slid on an icy curve on Hwy 88 east of Peddler Hill and rolled his Chevy pick-up when it hit a snow bank. He was taken to Sutter Roseville Hospital for injuries sustained in the accident. And on Sunday morning, an Oakland woman was driving west on Hwy 88 near Foster Meadows when she reduced her speed so she could turn off the road into the pull-out. A San Jose man, who CHP say was driving too fast for the traffic conditions, rear-ended the Oakland woman. Neither driver in that accident was injured.
