A three-car crash and single-vehicle rollover closed both north and southbound land of Highway 49 Wednesday afternoon. A female driver was pulled from an overturned four-door white sedan that landed on its roof in the southbound lane of Highway 49 near Luther Road around 3 p.m. She suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken by ambulance to an area hospital. A white Toyota mini van and white GMC pickup were also involved in the collision. Information from the California Highway Patrol was not immediately available. Donna Laffoon was traveling southbound when she witnessed the collision. She was in front of me and flipped into the air and slid, Laffoon said. It was not clear if the drivers of the other two vehicles suffered any injuries. The cause of the collision remains under investigation. Traffic was opened in both direction by 3:30 p.m. ” Penne Usher
