Second Head-On Fatality In Just Two Days

Second Head-On Fatality In Just Two Days

On Tuesday at approximately 4:25 PM hours, a 21 year old male from Plymouth was driving a 2002 Honda north on SR-49 approximately 1/2 mile north of the Amador County line. The Honda was slowing to make a left turn into a dirt turn-out when a northbound 1996 Ford being driven by Loren Fine (47 years, Fiddletown, CA) encountered the slowing/stopped Honda. For reasons still under investigation, Mr. Fine swerved to the left to avoid the Honda and drove into the southbound lane of SR-49. The left front of the Ford struck the left front of a southbound 2009 Toyota driven by a 59 year old female from Ione (identity pending notification of next of kin). The female driver of the Toyota unfortunately sustained fatal injuries as a result of the collision and was pronounced deceased at the scene. Mr. Fine sustained minor injuries and was transported to Marshall Hospital. The driver of the Honda pulled over and cooperated with CHP. The collision is still under investigation.
