The California Highway Patrol issued a news release April 26 regarding a two-vehicle collision that occurred on Sunday, April 24. According to the release, at approximately 12:55 p.m., Christopher Brown, 40, 0f Quincy, was driving a 2012 black Toyota Corolla and was stopped in the southbound lane of Beskeen Lane at the intersection with SR-70 (Crescent Street).
Claryssah Ghidossi, 19, of Portola, was driving a 2021 white Subaru Crosstrek westbound on SR-70, east of Beskeen Lane at approximately 50 mph.
Brown began to drive the Toyota forward into the intersection to make a left onto eastbound SR-70 directly in front of the approaching Subaru. Ghidossi saw the Toyota pull out in front of her, so she steered the Subaru to the right and applied the brakes to avoid a crash, but the left front of the Subaru collided with left rear of the Toyota within the intersection. Minor injuries were reported.
Brown was arrested for DUI following the crash after a DUI investigation was conducted by CHP. This crash is still under investigation.
