Fatal collision on Hwy 120

   On July 27, 2017 at approximately 2:30 PM Arthe Dubois (79) of Oakhurst was driving a 1999 Chevy pickup on Hwy 120 east of Buck Meadows at approximately 55 MPH.

   Dubois turned the vehicle to the right and onto the dirt shoulder where he struck three signs, then swerved to the left, almost entering the oncoming lane of traffic.

   Dubois again swerved to the right, traveling back onto the shoulder and side-swiping a pine tree.

    According to CHP, the pickup then overturned down an embankment, coming to rest on its side.

   The passenger in the vehicle, whose name is yet to be released, an 82 year old male, suffered fatal injuries.

   Dubois was transported to the hospital with major injuries.
