LAS LOMAS, CA (April 19, 2022) – A car accident involving three vehicles resulted in a truck flipping over on Elkhorn Road.
California Highway Patrol officer Chris Weaver said that the Las Lomas car accident occured when a woman driving a Mini Cooper heading south on Elkhorn Road collided with a Ford pickup carrying two men as it turned onto Werner Avenue around 8:45 a.m.
