Driver Killed In Head-On Crash With Big Rig Near Buckhorn Summit

In the second such accident of the day, a driver was killed in a head-on crash near the Shasta/Trinity County line Thursday night. At around 6:30PM the driver of a Kia 4-door was westbound on Highway 299 a little east of Buckhorn Summit passing other vehicles in the passing lane on a sharp corner when he lost control and went across the center line into the opposing lane. The Kia smashed head-on into a big rig. The Kia driver died but the trucker, 44-year-old Anarbo Cisneros-Torres of Red Bluff, was able to get clear with minor injuries before his semi became fully engulfed in flames that spread to vegetation. Cal-Fire units were in the area because of the Kennedy Fire, and they were able to hold the brush fire to about an acre.
