Highway 174 crash sends teen to hospital

A 17-year-old Colfax girl was transported to the hospital by helicopter after crashing her SUV into a stop sign and a tree Thursday morning.

California Highway Patrol officers responded to the scene of the accident on Highway 174 and Powerline Road just before 10 a.m., after receiving a report that the female driver of the Dodge Durango was unconscious.

The girl reportedly lost control of the SUV, ran off the road and took out a stop sign before hitting the tree.

She might have had a pre-existing medical condition that caused the accident. She was transported to Sutter Roseville Medical Center with minor to moderate injuries. She reportedly is in stable condition.
