Guerneville Road crash triggers fuel spill, road closure west of Santa Rosa

Guerneville Road was closed for several hours west of Santa Rosa on Wednesday after a crash resulted in a fuel spill and injured two people, authorities said.

The two-vehicle crash was reported to the California Highway Patrol around 4:39 a.m.

It happened near the intersection of Guerneville and Laguna roads, about 4.5 miles west of Santa Rosa city limits, according to CHP Officer Jeff Engwall.

One person had moderate injuries and another had minor injuries, Engwall said.

Authorities were aiming to reopen the road around noon after cleaning up the fuel spill, according to Engwall.

Just after 3 p.m., staff with Sonoma County’s Transportation and Public Works Roads Division confirmed the road had reopened.

Additional details about the crash were not immediately available, Engwall said.
