The CHP is asking for your help if you happened to be in the right place at the right time. Sunday, September 29, a piece of vehicle debris struck and entered through the front windshield of a vehicle, causing major head injuries to the driver.
Auburn CHP Officer David Martinez says what appears to the be a tragic accident occurred about 8:40 pm Sunday night.
Androo Allen (age 45 from Reno, NV), was driving his burgundy 2003 Cadillac Escalade westbound I-80, west of Weimar Cross Road in the #1 traffic. Kurt Reisinger (age 54 from Colfax) was driving his white 2003 Ford F-250 to the right of the Escalade in the #2 traffic lane.
Upon CHP and emergency medical personnel arriving on scene, it was discovered that a large piece of metal debris had traveled through the windshield of the Ford F-250 and struck Mr. Reisinger in the head, causing major head injuries. Mr. Reisinger was later air lifted by Calstar and flown to Sutter Roseville Medical Center with life threatening injuries. Officer Martinez would like to hear from you if you were in the area at the time of the crash.
The vehicle debris appears to be a large bracket from a mud flap, possibly from a large truck. If anyone observed this vehicle debris on I-80 last night or has information as to where this debris may have come from, please contact the Auburn Area CHP at (916) 663-3344, Monday–Friday 8am-5pm.
