At approximately 3:50 p.m. on June 6, a Hyundai Sonata with Arizona plates entered the intersection from Squaw Valley Road, colliding with a STAGE bus that was heading eastbound. The STAGE had no passengers in it at the time of the accident.

Two people were transported to Mercy Medical Center Mt. Shasta with non-life threatening injuries Thursday after their vehicle collided with a STAGE bus on Highway 89 at the McCloud intersection.

At approximately 3:50 p.m. on June 6, a Hyundai Sonata with Arizona plates entered the intersection from Squaw Valley Road, colliding with a STAGE bus that was heading eastbound. The STAGE had no passengers in it at the time of the accident.

Bill Langmaid, the driver of the bus, lost control after losing the right front tire and skidded about 25 yards across the westbound lane into the embankment.

“The Hyundai was driven by an elderly man with his wife as a passenger,” said California Highway Patrol officer JD Moser. “Alcohol is not a factor at this time and speeds were normal. The wife said that her husband got confused. Lucky for them they only had minor injuries due to seat belt usage.”

The accident was caught on the Chevron security cameras.

“We get people from out of the area that aren’t used to our roadways, so locals need to use extra caution driving this time of year,” Moser said.

Those with information about the accident should call the CHP office at (530) 926-2627 and ask for Moser.
