CHP Incident: Four Injured in Highway 36 Collision

The California Highway Patrol is releasing details of two-car collision that occurred on Highway 36, west of Susanville, and sent four people to the hospital with injuries suffered in the Friday afternoon crash.

According to the report 49-year old Denver, Colorado resident Michael J. Marion was traveling westbound on State Route 36, just west of State Route 44, in a 2018 Jeep Wrangler.

“Realizing he had just passed his turn onto State Route 44,” explains CHP Public Information Officer Kristin Wilburn, “Marion pulled [his vehicle] to the north shoulder of State Route 36 to prepare for a U-Turn.”

At that moment the driver of a 2013 Ford F-150, identified by CHP as 45-year old Winnemucca, Nevada resident Armando Esquivel and his two passengers, were traveling westbound on the highway at approximately 55 mph.

Without warning, Marion turned the Jeep left into the lane directly in front of Esquivel’s pickup. Esquivel did not have the time or the distance to safely maneuver around the Jeep to avoid the collision.

The front of the truck struck the left side of the Jeep causing major damage to both vehicles, which came to rest completely blocking the eastbound lanes of State Route 36.

All four people involved in the collision were transported to local hospitals with injuries which ranged from minor to moderate.

The cause of this collision is still under investigation.
