Hwy 88 Collision Takes The Lives Of 76 Year Old Pine Grove Man & His Dog.

Pine Grove, CA...A 38 year old Pine Grove woman was allegedly traveling westbound on SR-88 at a high rate of speed and driving recklessly, while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage. A 76 year old Pine Grove man (Update...The Amador Sheriff's Dept has released his name as Norman Albert Vogt) and his dog were traveling at or below the speed limit eastbound in a 1992 Ford pickup, followed by a Pioneer man in a Ford van. Due to her level of intoxication and unsafe speed for the conditions, lost control of her vehicle as she entered a right turn in the roadway. She crossed over the centerline and collided head on into the Ford pickup causing severe impact damage.

The pickup started to rollover and the sudden deceleration of the pickup caused the following Ford van to collide with the top portion and side of the pickup. After the collision her 2001 Mercury came to rest on the right shoulder of the eastbound lane on its wheels facing east. The Ford van came to rest on top of the pickup.

The intoxicated driver sustained major injuries and was taken to Sutter Roseville. The driver of the Ford pickup a 76 year old Pine Grove man and his dog sustained fatal injuries and perished at the scene.

The highway was closed for approximately 2 hours with Caltrans assisting in diverting traffic to alternate routes.

The Pine Grove woman was arrested and will be charged in the collision causing the death of the Pine Grove man. His name has not been released yet pending notification of his family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this collision. Life can end in an careful out there

ALLEGEDLY. Basic Journalism class, people. Until the person is convicted in a court of law you must use "allegedly" unless you want to get sued. Geeeez. Pinetree needs to get some experienced reporters if they want to claim to be a news source.

    Allegedly my A**, she was deemed intoxicated on scene. Either due to a breathalyzer or blood test. Consequently she was arrested, she killed somebody due to this. Pretty much guilty even before a jury trial of her peers.

    Not entirely accurate. It was determined at the scene that she was intoxicated. John could have thrown in an allegedly to cover the subsequent accident, but the intoxication test findings is indisputable.

    Really? Sounds pretty clear to me.....doesn't matter if the intoxicated driver be it alcohol., drugs, pot, cell phone, upset,or just plain stupid.
    Bottom line ,fact is and I know this is a hard word for you to grasp but she was ,RESPONSIBLE for this .

    Until the woman is proven guilty in a court of law she is innocent. Even if her blood tests came back above the legal limit. It is a shame what she ALLEGEDLY did, and I hope the courts find her guilty and punish her appropriately. But until she is convicted the media uses the word "allegedly". At least the real media. Not the fake media.

      The Pinetree isn't qualified or capable of writing real news articles.
      I'd say this is more of a poorly executed, local events blog, pretending to be an online newspaper.

    Editors Note: You are right and we have added allegedly. She has the right to defend herself and we hope for her sake there were other extenuating circumstances. This was a horrific collision.

    We were sent photos from the accident scene that we could not use because of their graphic nature. A man was driving safely close to home and a few moments later he was gone. His family's life was instantly changed forever.

    Not only did that man lose his life in this collision it will also have an effect on our first responders as well. Scenes like the ones yesterday they will not be able to unsee. Yes it is their job, but seeing a man die needlessly from a preventable collision will leave scars on them as well.

    We have far too many fatal collisions on our local roads.

    Impairment or a moments inattention can many times prove fatal on two lane roads. We have covered so many now that when I drive I actually think (a person died here, a person died there, etc)

      Thank you for fixing your sentence. You need another "alleged" in the "Due to her" sentence. Even though it appears the woman is guilty the press must always err on the side of caution or risk a lawsuit.

      Yes, this is a tragic story that easily could have been avoided. Too many people affected forever due to a reckless mistake.

    I think we need to go back 50-60 years in our justice system, pay for what you did, spend time in jail, not plea deal into community service. I am not saying that people are STUPID, but let's take all the warning labels off and let people figure it out.

The fact is this woman does not take laws or safety seriously at all. She broke the law by driving while under the influence of alcohol, not wearing a seat belt and speeding. If she obeyed the laws everyone else does, this man and his dog would still be alive today. This mans family will never see him again because a drunk, and I call her a drunk because only a drunk would be intoxicated on a Tuesday before noon and only a drunk will take the risk to drive because they are always drunk so they drive drunk. My heart goes out to the family of the man and dog that were taken away from them. I really hope they make an example out of this woman if or when she is found guilty. Give her the maximum prison time for taking the life of a man and add on extra time for taking the life of an animal. Obviously the dog was treated like a part of the family and I am sure that just added to the pain and suffering the family already feels.

    you all got one thing right.. a reckless person driving.. so many drivers dont realize potential hazards driving even when sober. many think they are in a safe box on the road and are too lax
