Passenger Injured in Williams Car Crash ID’d as Jodi Richardson
Colusa County, California (October 10, 2019) – The California Highway Patrol has identified one of the four victims injured in a fatal car crash in Williams on Sunday night as 23-year-old Jodi Richardson of Rocklin.
The deadly collision happened along Highway 20 west of Walnut Drive at about 7:26 p.m. on October 6.
The accident involved a 1996 Toyota Camry traveling west on Highway 20 and a Ford Expedition moving in the opposite direction.
The Camry spun out of control for unknown reasons and then turned sideways as it crossed into the path of the Ford Expedition. The CHP said the Ford failed to avoid the collision and broadsided the Camry.
The operator of the Expedition and another occupant were transported to the hospital by paramedics for treatment of minor wounds.
Two Oakland female parties, ages 32 and 29, riding in the Camry, were sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
Richardson sustained severe injuries in the crash and was rushed to UC Davis Medical Center. Another 16-year-old kid was also hospitalized at Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento for treatment of moderate injuries. Both Richardson and the 16-year-old victim were passengers in the Ford.
Meanwhile, the investigation is underway.
