Six people were injured in a ten-vehicle crash in Santa Rosa last Monday.
The collision occurred at around 9:25 a.m. at the intersection of Mendocino Avenue and Fountaingrove Parkway. A 2017 Ford F-150 was headed south on Mendocino when it was struck by a 2009 Kenworth dump truck in the intersection.
Both vehicles lost control and the Ford then struck a 1991 Ford Explorer. Several other vehicles waiting at the intersection were also involved.
The occupants of the Ford F-150 were both hospitalized with critical injuries. They have been identified as Barbara Schmidt, 76, and Carol Strong, 72.
A third person, 64-year-old Linda Holden, was also hospitalized with serious injuries. Her son Chad Carrol, 46, was involved in the crash but escaped injury.
The driver of the 1991 Ford Explorer has been identified as Bill Frisbie, 82. It is not known if he was injured or not.
The driver of the dump truck has been identified as Francisco Alberto Rodriguez, 45. He was hauling debris from a nearby fire, and claimed that his brakes failed, but this remains under investigation.
