Nicolaus, CA (December 14, 2018) – Two people were killed and three others were injured in a three-car crash in Nicolaus. The fatal accident happened on the afternoon of December 14 on Powerline Road.

A 72-year-old woman and a 78-year-old man from Oroville were in a Cadillac CTS heading south on Powerline Road, near Highway 99. The woman stopped at the intersection, then pulled into the path of a Ford F-350.

The pickup hit the driver’s side of the Cadillac. It then rolled into the southbound lane, where it was hit by a Toyota Tacoma.

The man died at the accident scene. The woman was taken to a local hospital, where she later died. The driver of the Ford, Nicolaus resident Troy Stotka, suffered minor injuries. The driver of the Toyota, 30-year-old Brandon Kolb of Citrus Heights, and his passenger, 21-year-old Logan Hiebert of Citrus Heights, suffered major injuries and were taken to a local hospital.
