MARIN COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) — One person died after a traffic collision in Marin County, according to a Facebook post from CHP. The incident happened around 1:22 p.m. on Point Reyes Petaluma Road near Hicks Valley Road where two cars were involved in the crash: a 2000 Subaru Impreza and a 1999 Honda Accord.
