2 Killed In Tehama County Pickup Crash

Two people are dead following the fiery crash of a pickup in Tehama County Tuesday night. At around 6:30PM, on Hall Road in the Richfield Area north of Corning, a southbound 2003 Chevy Duramax pickup was traveling at a high rate of speed. A witness estimated it 100 miles an hour. It was in the stretch north of River Road through the dry bed of Thomes Creek where the road is gravel that the driver lost control. The truck veered to the west , hit a berm, and went airborne for about 100 feet before landing on another berm and bouncing back onto the road. The pickup became fully engulfed in flames. Both the driver and the passenger were killed. Neither have been identified.
