Placerville, CA (March 6, 2023) – At least one person was transported to an area hospital for the treatment of injuries following a car crash that took place in Placerville on Sunday afternoon.

Calls for assistance were received by California Highway Patrol just after 2:30 p.m. on March 5.

Preliminary reports provided by CHP show that a black Mercedes SUV and a second vehicle collided on the westbound side of US Highway 50. The incident blocked multiple lanes, prompting the police to close off the roadway as they worked to remove the damaged vehicles and debris.

Medics were dispatched to care for injured victims and to provide them with transportation to area hospitals.

The circumstances surrounding the accident are currently being investigated.
