Mother of 2 Men Killed In Marin County Car Crash Talks About Her Sons

MARIN COUNTY (CBS SF) – The mother of two brothers who died along with another man in a horrific crash in west Marin County talks about her love for her sons.

Jetara Sehart got the awful news early Tuesday morning when two deputies arrived at her home in Woodacre.

“Chance and Lance were very loved,” Sehart said.

Authorities identified the three male occupants of a vehicle who died in the crash on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard southeast of Point Reyes Station.

The 2013 Toyota Corolla was heading west on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard east of Platform Bridge Road west of Samuel P. Taylor State Park around 12:15 a.m., CHP Officer Andrew Barclay said.

The Toyota crossed the eastbound traffic lane and went off the road where it struck a power pole and two trees at a high rate of speed, Barclay said.

A passerby who came upon the crash called 911. The CHP, Marin County Sheriff’s Office and Marin County Fire Department responded, Barclay said.

The three occupants were declared dead at the scene.  Marin County Chief Deputy Coroner Darrell Harris said none of the three victims had identification on them, but one victim has been identified and his family is being contacted as of Tuesday morning.

The coroner was able to positively identified all three men by fingerprint comparison to California DMV records. The men were identified as 18-year-old Novato resident Chance Muerer, who was driving the vehicle, and two brothers who were passengers: 18-year-old San Anselmo resident Lancelot Mattaeus Argall and 20-year-old Woodacre resident Chancellor Grier Argall.

“I love my boys more than anything in the world. They’re my whole purpose of living. And so now I’m lost. And they’re lost too,” Sehart said.

She says Lance was the sparkly one, an artist with quick wit. Chance was a musician who played guitar by ear.

“My saddest thing is that I could not hug them right now. You know? And just tell them I love them one more time. And tell them that it didn’t matter if they didn’t have a job tomorrow or their clothes were dirty…they needed to just be okay to live here and I wish I could tell them that now,” Sehart said.

Sir Francis Drake Boulevard was closed until about 6 a.m., and PG&E responded to repair the power pole support beam that was destroyed in the crash.

Investigators do not yet know whether speed, drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.

    These were wonderful young men who apparently made a momentary mistake that cost them their lives. Who among us cannot say we have done foolish things??- most of us are lucky to live and learn from them. God bless them and their families.

      I am quite sure God does not give a flying fu ck about these three dumb fu ckers. And I have not done anything anywhere as stupid as these dou ches. Thank you for assuming everyone is as stupid as these three wastes.

    Horrible news.

      It is wonderful news that the rest of us do not have to be on the road with these tu rd eaters any longer and that are families are in danger of having to drive along side these 3rd rate citizens.

  3. Three bros drinking, speeding…meet two trees and God. Typical foolish young people. Thankfully, they took themselves out without hurting anyone else.

  4. Wow! Where is your compassion! Two mothers just lost sons. Prayers to the families and all who are affected by this tragic accident.

    1. Alan says:

      We should pray that they don’t produce more idiots like the ones they just lost.

    2. Carlos Humpingher says:

      Those were two loads that she should have swallowed instead, eh?

    No one deserves death. Accidents happen all of the time and theres nothing we can do except show love and support for those lucky enough to still be alive and living around us. These young men were extremely kind, generous, and most of all loved individuals. All we can do now is keep them in our hearts and not spread despicable, negativity to places where it is unneeded. The roads are never safe, but we might as well try to keep the internet a safe and hate-free place for people to share their thoughts and feelings and be able to be supported by their community. Sending all my love to the family, friends, and all others effected by this tragedy.

      You sound like a real tool. Please stop making excuses for dumb adults who cannot drive properly. It is bad enough that there are so many slanty eyed drivers driving around as if they have jello for legs, we don’t need normal people crashing into things for no reason.

  6. Some of these posts defy understanding. I’ll quietly say a prayer, and hope for a change of heart. Peace out.
