There was one collision on Highway 243 last week, according to California Highway Patrol (CHP) Public Information Officer Matt Napier.
On May 2 at 2:55 p.m., Theresa Marie Larkin, 64 of Idyllwild, and her passenger William Larkin, 93 of Idyllwild, were traveling northbound on Highway 243 near Jameson Drive in a white 2020 Mercedes Benz GLA 250.
According to the CHP report, Larkin was traveling greater than 20 mph and due to her unsafe speed was unable to maintain control and drifted to the right-hand side of the road, causing her to lose control and collide with a large boulder.
Both occupants were transported to Desert Reginal Medical Center. Theresa suffered minor injuries and was transported by Idyllwild Fire Protection District ambulance. William suffered major injuries and was transported by Mercy Air.
Idyllwild Garage towed the vehicle.
