HOLLISTER, CA (February 6, 2023) – Saturday morning, a woman was killed and Trisha Bachman was involved in a two-car crash on Highway 156.

Police received dispatch calls in the area around 6:57 a.m., just west of Monterey Street.

Officers say the female driver of an eastbound 2019 Honda Civic was traveling at unsafe speeds on the No. 1 lane of Highway 165 in wet road conditions.

The woman then lost control of the Honda and veered directly into the No. 2 lane where she hit the guardrail.
