Woman Killed in St Helena Pedestrian Accident
A woman was killed in a St Helena pedestrian accident on the night of August 5, 2019. The incident occurred shortly before 9:00 p.m. on Highway 29 at Mee Lane, just south of St Helena. A woman was walking in the area when she was struck by a sedan driven by a 28-year-old Winters woman, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) said. Another vehicle traveling directly behind the first car also reportedly crashed into the woman. Crews from Napa County Fire Department were called to the scene to free the woman who was trapped under the vehicle. Sadly, she was declared deceased at the scene. Officials have identified the decedent as 25-year-old Samantha Lin of Raleigh, North Carolina. I would like to send my thoughts and prayers to the family of Ms. Lin during this difficult time.
