News


A 58-year-old man was killed in a car crash after veering into oncoming traffic in El Dorado County on Sunday. He was later identified as James D. Kuehn from Shingle Springs. 

California Highway Patrol Sgt. Chris Sahagan said the crash, involving three cars, happened when Kuehn crossed double-yellow lines in the road near Cothrin Ranch Road and swiped a Chevy Malibu. Kuehn's car spun and struck a Mercedes sedan head on.

Sahagan said it's unknown why he allowed his Toyota MR2 to veer into the opposite lane. Kuehn was pronounced dead at the scene and no one else was hurt in the accident. 

The accident happened northbound on Latrobe Road, in a rural area south of El Dorado Hills.
