One dead three injured in Santa Rosa auto accident

Monday, October 11, 2010By Richard Alexander
Santa Rosa - Shelli K. Shimmel, a 43-year-old female passenger of a car driven by a Santa Rosa teenager Sebastian Jenz Hollingworth, 18, died Friday night after the vehicle rolled onto its roof in Sonoma County and injured three young girls also inside the vehicle, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Officers received a call at about 8:26 p.m. reporting the overturned vehicle at Petaluma Hill Road just north of Hunter Lane in an area of unincorporated Sonoma County south of Santa Rosa.

An investigation determined that Jenz Hollingworth, was driving the 2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer southbound on Petaluma Hill Road.

Traveling at approximately 60 mph, an inattentive Hollingworth drifted into the northbound lane, then cut the steering wheel hard to the right, the CHP said.

The TrailBlazer barreled off the roadway after it lost control, then struck two trees before rolling onto its roof and coming to a rest in a drainage culvert, according to the CHP.

Shelli Shimmel, died from her injuries, the CHP said.

Three other passengers in the car - girls ages six, 13, and 16 - also suffered moderate to major injuries and were taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Hollingworth suffered minor injuries.

The CHP has ruled out alcohol as a factor in the accident.
