Man Killed in Car Accident on Highway 20 at Blue Lakes Lodge in Lake County


Lake County, California (January 15, 2020) – A man has succumbed to injuries he sustained in a multi-vehicle collision that occurred in the Blue Lakes area of Lake County on Sunday.

The accident happened on Highway 20 at Blue Lakes Lodge at about 4:11 p.m. January 12, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The authorities said a Willits man was driving a Toyota pickup truck eastbound on Highway 20 when he veered across the double-yellow lines and sideswiped a westbound GMC Sierra driven by 57-year-old Gabriel Gutierrez of Kelseyville.

The Toyota then continued on the westbound lanes and collided head-on with a 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 driven by Phillip Nasca, 51, of Eureka.

The driver of the Toyota, whose identity was not immediately established, suffered major injuries and was taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, where he died while undergoing treatment.

No other person was injured in the collision.

More information on the accident was not provided.
