A man stabbed repeatedly during an altercation at a Rio Nido home Tuesday night was being rushed to a hospital in a car when that driver lost control and crashed on River Road, injuring three occupants, according to initial emergency dispatch reports.

Two people were thrown from the vehicle and one was trapped inside the wreckage in the 10:15 p.m. crash near Woolsey Road.

The stabbing apparently occurred about 10:10 p.m. with the crash coming just minutes later as the eastbound vehicle flipped onto its roof.

Rincon Valley, Windsor and Santa Rosa firefighters responded to the crash, as well as Bells ambulances and Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital’s trauma unit was alerted to receive the three patients, according to Redcom dispatch reports. CHP and Sonoma County sheriff’s deputies responded to the stabbing report.
