Thousand Palms woman dies after I-5 collision

A 66-year-old Thousand Palms woman died after she arrived at Colusa Medical Center on Aug. 22, where she had been taken to be treated for visible scrapes and treatment of internal injuries following a two-car collision on Interstate 5 that day, the California Highway Patrol’s Williams Area Office said in a press release sent on Aug. 29.

According to CHP, at around 1:45 Pm on Aug. 22, the Chico Communications Center broadcast a call of an unknown injury collision with an ambulance responding, on southbound I-5 near the Maxwell Rest Area in Colusa County. CHP said that Charles J. Allee, 76, of Thousand Palms was driving his 2008 Cadillac in the slow lane of southbound I-5 at about 75 mph when – for reasons still under investigation – he rear-ended a 2018 Freightliner that was traveling at about 60 mph, also in the slow lane.

CHP said that following the collision, both parties drove their respective vehicles onto the west shoulder of the freeway, and 911 was called. When emergency personnel arrived, they transported Charles Allee – who suffered what CHP described as minor injuries – by ambulance to Colusa Medical Center as a precaution. His wife, identified as Twyla D. Allee, was also transported to Colusa Medical Center “for visible scrapes and treatment of internal injuries.” The driver of the Freightliner, Tracy L. Chapman, 51, of Taft, was not injured in the collision.

When Twyla Allee arrived at the Colusa Medical Center, she “began to experience medical difficulties and ultimately succumbed to her injuries,” CHP said in the statement. “She was pronounced deceased at approximately (6:15 PM).”

CHP said that they have determined that drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the collision. n
