UPDATE 12/20/22 1 PM
 
Here's the latest update from the Santa Rosa CHP office:
 
Last night at approximately 5:42pm, Santa Rosa CHP and Monte Rio Fire personnel responded to a crash on private property at the Happy Hills Hunting Club. Response and rescue efforts by emergency personnel were hampered by difficult access and steep terrain. The crash involved two Jeeps in two separate crashes with a total of five occupants. Preliminary investigation indicates the first Jeep overturned down a steep embankment. The second Jeep driven by a 49-year-old male attempted to help the occupants in the first crash, but his Jeep also overturned down the embankment and crashed. In the first crash was a 32-year-old male driver and a male juvenile passenger who both sustained fatal injuries. Emergency personnel extricated and transported the 49-year-old male with life-threatening injuries to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital (SRMH). There were two additional male juveniles transported to SRMH with minor to moderate injuries. Any inquiries on the identity of the deceased should be directed to the Sonoma County Coroners Office.
 
INITIAL STORY
 
One person died immediately and another succumbed to their injuries north of Cazadero on Monday evening, after a vehicle went over an embankment and crashed 300 feet down a ravine.
 
Three others in the vehicle were injured. According to the CHP incident page, the first report came in at 5:42 pm that a car had driven off Mohrhardt Ridge Road near King Ridge Road.
 
Police and fire crews had to use helicopters and an ATV to get to the crash site near Ward Creek and rescue the survivors. We'll have more on this story as information becomes available.
