Deadly on the road

A 16-year-old girl died after her car went off a rural road in Sutter County Wednesday morning and overturned in a water-filled canal, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The fatal crash happened around 7:30 a.m. on Clements Road, just north of Bogue Road, a few miles west of Yuba City.

The girl, a resident of Knights Landing in Yolo County, was driving a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro west on Bogue and approaching the 90-degree curve toward Clements, the CHP Yuba-Sutter office said in a news release.

The teen driver could not safely make the right turn, and the car went from the west side of Clements. The CHP said the Camaro overturned in the canal.

A witness called 911 to report the accident. The boy could not get out of the car. The CHP said firefighters arrived on the scene and jumped into the canal to free the driver.

Several minutes later, firefighters freed the girl, who was unresponsive, the CHP said. The fire department started CPR on the driver. She was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead shortly after arrival, authorities said.

The CHP said it is not known if drugs or alcohol were a factor in this collision. The Sutter County Coroner’s Office will release her name after her family is notified.
