Fatal collision in Burson

   According to a CHP press release on December 23, 2018 around 10:25 PM Donald Jackson (26) of Wallace was driving his 1996 Chevy Silverado on Pettinger Road north of Messing Road in the Burson area.

   Dusty Jackson (22) of Valley Springs was driving his 2002 Chevy Silverado also on Pettinger Road northbound.

   Chelsea Lund (27) of Valley Springs was driving  a 2015 Chevy Cruze southbound on Pettinger Road.

   Apparently Donald Jackson was passing Dusty Jackson over the double yellow lines and directly into the path of Lund's car.

   Due to his alleged level of intoxication,  Donald Jackson was unable to safely pass and get back into his lane before crashing in Lund head-on.    The other Chevy Silverado then became part of the collision. 

  Chelsea Lund was transported to Mark Twain Meical Center where she was pronounced deceased.

   The passengers in the Cruze, Dylan Burch (27) of Lockeford and Kaiden Lund (8) of Valley Springs were taken to UC Davis Medical Center with major injuries.

   Donald Jackson was taken to Mercy San Juan Medical Center with major injures. Dusty Jackson was not injured.

   Further investigation at the scene resulted in Donald Jackson and Dusty Jackson being arrested for alleged Felony Driving Under the Influence. Donald Jackson was further charged with alleged Gross Vehicle Manslaughter while intoxicated.

   Per CHP alcohol was a primary factor in this collision. The collision is still under investigation.
