Grass Valley woman flown to Roseville after wreck

A Grass Valley woman was flown to a Roseville hospital with head trauma after a two-vehicle accident Friday afternoon.

Shayna McDonald, 26, was driving a Chevrolet truck westbound on Wolf Road just west of Brian Lane at about 3:30 p.m., while Donald Frazer, 70, was driving eastbound in a Dodge pickup.

McDonald reportedly was driving at high speed and crossed the double yellow lines just as Frazer approached, clipping the left front wheel and tire of his Dodge with her truck’s front wheel and tire.

McDonald’s truck then collided with a dirt embankment and overturned, according to a report from the California Highway Patrol.

McDonald was taken to Sutter Roseville Medical Center via helicopter; her condition was unavailable Tuesday.

Frazer sustained an abrasion and bruising to his left bicep and declined treatment at the scene.

Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor and the accident remains under investigation.
