Saturday Crash Claims The Life Of Rio Vista Woman 

A Saturday afternoon accident claimed the life of a Rio Vista woman. According to the Calaveras CHP, Cathy Bennington of Danville was driving her vehicle eastbound on Highway 4 east of Stallion Way at approximately 30-40 miles per hour. Crista Haynes was riding a motorcycle westbound on the highway at approximately 70 miles per hour approaching Bennington. Haynes passed two vehicles over the solid double yellow lines and attempted to reposition back within the westbound lane. As she moved into the westbound lane, she entered a right hand curve in the roadway and was unable to negotiate the curve and traveled back over the double yellow lines into the eastbound lane colliding head on with Bennington’s vehicle. Haynes was transported to Sonora Regional Medical Center with serious injuries, where she later died. The CHP report, alcohol and/or drugs are not believed to be a factor in this collision.
