Avery Woman Killed In Two Vehicle Collision 

A 39 year old Avery woman was killed in a two vehicle collision Friday morning near Burson.   According to the CHP, Molly Jean Collins was leaving from a private driveway in the Burson area east of Haskell Street and made what was described as an unsafe left turn onto Highway 12 into the path of a westbound pickup truck, driven by Mitchell McGee of Valley Springs.  Despite life-saving efforts, Collins was pronounced deceased at the scene.  Her passenger, a four-year-old male, was transported to UC Davis Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.   McGee was reportedly uninjured.   While the collision is still under investigation, CHP officials say that neither drugs nor alcohol are believed to be a factor.
