San Andreas, CA — The CHP has released the identities of two local people who perished Tuesday afternoon in a Highway 12 crash.

The single-vehicle collision occurred in the area of Lime Creek Road and Highway 12, according to San Andreas CHP Officer Toby Butzler. He says the two deceased are 51-year-old Kathleen Brewer and 59-year-old Lynn Dee Scott, both of Valley Springs.
