One person died and four people were injured in a head-on collision Friday night near Kyburz.
A woman was driving west on Highway 50 about two mile east of the 76 Station when she drifted across the center line into oncoming traffic.
California Highway Patrol Sgt. Chris Sahagun said the accident is under investigation and the cause is under investigation.
He didn’t know if the road was wet at the time of the 5:45pm Oct. 16 collision, but said it was when he arrived on scene an hour later.
The identities of the five people have not been released. All were wearing seat belts.
The male driver of the other vehicle, who is from San Pablo, was air lifted to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento with moderate injuries. His three passengers – two men and a woman – complained of pain and were taken by ambulance to area hospitals.
