An accident on Nov. 9 on Barkley Road in Camino claimed the lives of two Placerville men.
Trent Wanta, 23, was driving his 2001 Toyota Echo westbound on Barkley Road at 7:10 p.m. with Cody Clevland, 24, as his passenger, a CHP report stated.
Driving at an unknown rate of speed, Wanta failed to negotiate a left curve in the roadway, hitting a tree stump and causing the car to go airborne. The car rotated counter-clockwise in the air and struck a large redwood tree on the passenger’s side of the car. Both men suffered fatal injuries from the collision.
The cause of the collision is still under investigation, the report stated.
