    CHP officers don’t know what caused the crash. They said a 1949 stake-bed truck flipped over, then a Honda Civic ran into the truck.

    After an extensive ground and air search, investigators were unable to locate the driver of a Honda Civic.

    The driver of the truck was transported to the hospital. The extent of the drivers injuries is unknown.

    The CHP said the Civic is registered to a woman, but they were unable to provide any further details.

    The vehicles and debris from the wreckage were cleared from the scene within an hour of the accident.
