Pickup, Mustang slam in south Marysville
Two women were injured Monday in Marysville after their car was T-boned by a pickup truck on the edge of town.
Emergency workers had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate the trapped driver, but she escaped major injuries, investigators said.
The crash happened shortly after 1 p.m. in the corner of First and F streets near Highway 70.
According to Jenn Inc., a private accident investigation firm that contracts with the Marysville Police Department, Barbara Benton, 36, of Brownsville, and a female passenger were headed north on F Street in a blue Ford Mustang.
The passenger's identity was not immediately available.
In the meantime, Cesar Villa, 22, of Marysville, was headed south on F Street in an older-model Chevrolet Silverado. Richard Seghieri, an investigator with Jenn Inc., said Villa attempted to turn left onto the Highway 70 South onramp, didn't see the oncoming Mustang and slammed into the car.
Villa was not injured, Seghieri said. Benton and her passenger were taken by ambulance to Sutter Roseville Medical Center for treatment, he said.
Seghieri said neither alcohol nor drugs appeared to be a factor in the collision.
