A 38-year-old man from Bella Vista is dead following a head-on crash Thursday morning on Highway 299 east of Redding. It was at 10AM just west of Fenders Ferry Road, about halfway between Round Mountain and Montgomery Creek. According to the CHP, a Dodge pickup truck driven by a 57-year-old man from Atascadero ran head-on into a Toyota pickup driven by the Bella Vista man. The Dodge driver suffered minor injures. One of the trucks was apparently a pest control vehicle. Names have not been released. The CHP does not believe either driver was impaired.
