A 21-year-old man from Grass Valley was identified Monday as the driver killed over the weekend in a wrong-way collision on Highway 20/49.

Liam Webb had been pronounced dead at the scene, said California Highway Patrol Officer Mike Steele.

Webb at 11:20 p.m. Saturday was driving a Prius east in the westbound lane of Highway 20/49, approaching East Main Street, when he collided head-on with a Ford Edge being driven by Donald Frazeur, 74, of Lake of the Pines, Steele said.

Steele said that alcohol use is suspected to have played a role in this incident, though it remains under investigation.

Donald Frazeur and his passenger, Donna Frazeur, 73, were transported to Sutter Roseville Medical Center with moderate to major injuries, Steele said.
