QUINCY, Calif. (Update: 12:18 a.m.) – A collision blocked all lanes of Highway 70 north of Quincy Wednesday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

The collision happened around 7:09 a.m. A lumber truck, UPS truck, and a silver Toyota RAV4, blocked off all lanes on Highway 70 from Route 89, west of Keddie, until around 10 a.m., according to Caltrans.

Officers said the driver of the UPS truck that was towing a trailer, was speeding westbound on Highway 70. The trailer crossed into oncoming traffic and hit the Toyota. The CHP said the Toyota was pushed into the eastbound lane - directly into the path of the lumber truck - which was behind the UPS truck.

The Toyota collided with the lumber truck head-on while almost completely in the eastbound lane, CHP said.

The woman driving the Toyota suffered major injuries and had to be extricated from the vehicle. The CHP said she was flown to Enloe Medical Center in Chico for treatment. The drivers of both trucks were uninjured.
