Gasquet Firefighters Capture Horrible Scene after Major Injury Crash
Chickinell had been traveling southbound in her 1989 Mercedes on Hwy 199 north of Pioneer Road when for unknown reasons she struck a large rock in the roadway, according to the California Highway Patrol. This caused her to lose control and veer off the west side of the road. There she crashed into a boulder.
She was taken by Del Norte Ambulance to Sutter Coast Hospital. Gasquet Fire (who provided us the photos) and the California Highway Patrol also assisted.
