BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A woman was injured early Wednesday morning after the car she was in rolled over from the impact of a T-bone wreck, west of Chico.
CHP Officer Torrey Rodgers told Action News Now at the scene that the crash happened around 7 a.m. at the intersection of Highway 32 and Meridian Road.
In total two vehicles were involved, a Jeep Wrangler and a Dodge Durango.
Rodgers says the driver of the Jeep was traveling south on Meridian, stopped at the stop sign on the north side of 32, and waited to cross to continue south on Meridian.
As soon as the Jeep tried to cross Highway 32, a Durango was going east on Highway 32 and hit the Jeep on the side.
The impact then caused the Jeep to roll over, hit a fence, and then land upside down in front of a home, adjacent to Highway 32.
The driver of the Jeep told officers that she thought she had enough time to cross the highway, but her timing was off.
She now has moderate injuries as a result of the crash, while the occupants inside the Durango were not hurt.
CHP is reminding folks to relax and slow down. Traffic was never blocked in that area since the cars were on the side of the road.
