Michael Jaco Dies in Lower Lake Accident at Highway 29 and C Street

Lower Lake, California – Michael Brandon Jaco, 41, of Clearlake, was killed in a traffic collision that happened at Highway 29 and C Street on Thursday evening, according to California Highway Patrol.

At around 5:52 p.m. December 17, CHP said Jaco was driving a 1999 Toyota Corolla north on Highway 29 when, for unknown reasons he crashed into the back of a 2001 Peterbilt 300 series truck that was pulling a Trailermax flatbed trailer.

The big rig had been traveling north on the highway and was preparing to turn left onto C Street.

Jaco was pronounced deceased at the scene, according to CHP.

The driver of the big rig, Brian Case, 48, of Clearlake, and his passenger, an 11-year-old Clearlake boy, were not injured in the accident.

Alcohol and drugs were not suspected to have played a role in the accident.

The wreck is under investigation.

While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
