2 Injured In Highway 101 Rollover Crash In Novato
NOVATO (CBS SF) – Two Novato residents suffered minor injuries in a crash on northbound U.S. Highway 101 in Novato Wednesday morning, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.
The first driver, Mynor Gramajo, 22, was driving a 1994 Toyota 4Runner at 60 to 65 mph approaching the South Novato Boulevard exit when the crash happened around 7:50 a.m., CHP Officer Eric Hohmeister said.
The second motorist, William Lawrence, 55, was driving a 2003 Ford Ranger in a lane to the left of the Toyota, Hohmeister said.
One of the vehicles made an unsafe lane change, causing them to collide, Hohmeister said. Both vehicles then traveled west across all northbound lanes and struck a concrete center divider.
The Toyota rolled over approximately six times, according to witnesses, and came to rest in lanes of traffic, Hohmeister said.
Both drivers were taken to Marin General Hospital for treatment of minor scrapes and abrasions and complaints of pain, Hohmeister said.
Crews removed debris from the scene, and the highway reopened around 8:30 a.m., Hohmeister said.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
