Lakeport woman hurt in Highway 101 accident

UKIAH – A Lakeport woman received minor injuries in a wreck that took place along Highway 101 on Tuesday.

The California Highway Patrol's Ukiah office reported that Brittany Zastrow, 18, received minor injuries in a collision that happened just after noon.

Zastrow was driving her 1980 Honda Prelude 70 miles per hour southbound in lane No. 1 of Highway 101 when she drifted into the median, possibly because she fell asleep, according to the CHP.

She lost control of her vehicle and entered the northbound lane, where the front of her Honda struck the side of a 1994 Chevy Astro van driven by Robbie Ruddock, 41, of Ukiah, the CHP reported.

Zastrow's car continued down a dirt embankment, the CHP report explained, while Ruddock's vehicle came to rest on the right shoulder.

Both Zastrow and Ruddock were treated for minor injuries at Ukiah Valley Medical Center, according to the CHP.

The CHP reported that both Zastrow and Ruddock were wearing their seat belts when the accident took place.
