Head-on crash kills 1, injures 2 in Sonoma County: CHP

A head-on collision in Santa Rosa has killed one and injured two, including one with critical injuries, authorities said.

Around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday morning, CHP Santa Rosa officers responded to a crash on River Road and Bonita Avenue in Guerneville, officials said. One vehicle left its lane, driving at an "unsafe speed" and crashed into another vehicle.

Initial investigation revealed a Chevrolet Blazer S-10 was traveling eastbound on River Road towards Bonita Avenue when the GMC Canyon was traveling westbound on River Road when it crossed lanes and "veered sharply to the left," and crashed into the front of the S-10 from the left.
