A tragic accident in Concow leaves two people dead Wednesday afternoon. According to the California Highway Patrol it happened around 4:45 p.m. Four people were in a Ford F-250 pickup on Concow Road when the driver apparently became distracted by some of the passengers. The truck went off the roadway, tumbling a thousand feet down a steep hillside.
According to officers on scene the two passengers in the back seat, a man and a woman, were killed. The driver and front-seat passenger were seriously injured. Names have not been released. It's not clear if anyone in the truck was wearing a seat belt or if alcohol was involved. A friend told Action News they may have been visiting a shooting range.
