7-year old sustains major injuries in two car accident in Ferndale

FERNDALE - a 7-year old child was airlifted to an out of area hospital after a two vehicle collision near Ferndale.

Just before 4:30 this afternoon, CHP says Graciella Castaneda of Arcata was traveling westbound on Highway 211 with her two children. She was making a left hand turn onto Goble Lane when for unknown reasons a Dodge van, driven by Rodney Campbell of Rio Dell, allegedly ran into the back of Castaneda's Toyota.

All occupants of both vehicles received minor to moderate injuries but Castaneda's 7-year-old daughter sustained major injuries and had to be airlifted to UC Davis Medical Center. DUI was not a factor in this accident and everyone was wearing seatbelts.
