A three car crash on northbound Highway 99 was the result of distracted driving, California Highway Patrol officials said Thursday.
The accident, reportedly a head-on collision happened around 12:40 p.m. near the Durham Pentz Road off-ramp, just south of Butte College.
It appears as though nobody was seriously injured, but one person was transported to a local hospital for treatment after complaining of some pain.
CHP officers on the scene say the driver of an Acura sedan was traveling southbound on Highway 99 when she became distracted looking at her stereo and veered into northbound lanes.
Wet conditions gave responding medics some headaches, as an ambulance crew was leaving the scene they became stuck in the mud and a patient had to be transferred to another vehicle.
