Napa County, California – Danita Shook, 40, of Lower Lake was killed in a Napa County crash in the 6200 block of the Silverado Trail northeast of Yountville on Thursday afternoon, according to the CHP.

Shook was a passenger in a 2010 Honda driven by her 15-year-old daughter. The car was southbound on the Silverado Trail when it drifted onto the shoulder and crashed into a tree near Baldacci Family Vineyards.

The accident took place just before 4:03 p.m. January 21.

CHP said Shook was killed in the accident.

Her daughter and 13-year-old son, who was also a passenger in the vehicle, were both taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Center with minor injuries.

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, CHP said.

The CHP is investigating the collision.
