Three people were injured when a SUV crashed into a fence off Highway 50 and Hazel Avenue near Naturwood Furniture.
Officer Tommy Riggins with CHP said that alcohol was a contributing factor. Pete Talley, 54, was driving eastbound on Highway 50 when he drifted off the roadway and rolled his vehicle. The two passengers inside the vehicle managed to get out but Talley had to be cut out of the car by firefighters, Riggins said.
All three were hospitalized, with Talley being the most seriously injured, Riggins said. Riggins clarified that while the vehicle did not damage the furniture store, it did cause damage to the fence.
