Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, July 28, 2010 SB !t CHP REPORT ATV and Jeep, July 12 Shaun Klobes, 26, of the Chic area was riding his 2007 Suzuki ATV southbound on USFS Road 24N29X (Silver Lake Road) at the stated speed of 30 - 35 mph. Steve Small, 52, of Quincy was traveling northbound on USFS Road 24N29X (Silver Lake Road) at the stated speed of 20 mph in a 1977 Jeep. According to CHP, Klobes was descending into a sharp right hand turn and could not see Small approaching due to the limited sight view from the brush and trees. When Klobes suddenly saw Small, he pan- icked and steered left while he applied his vehicle's brakes. Klobes traveled into the north- bound lane and directly into the path of Srnall's vehicle. Both vehicles collided head- on and Klobes was ejected from his vehicle before both vehicles came to rest on the east embankment of the road edge. Small assisted Klobes until emergency personnel arrived. Klobes was taken to Plumas District Hospital for moderate injuries. Attempted evasion, July 16 Jose Sot, 38, of Fresno, was driving a 1995 Dodge pickup southbound on Clio State 40A Road. Sot was allegedly at- tempting to evade a CHP pa- trol vehicle after~running a stop sign in the city of Portola. CHP determined Sot was driving at approximately 40 mph, proceeding straight on Clio State 40A Road when he lost control of the pickup and it collided with a tree on the east shoulder. The vehicle crossed Clio State 40A Road and went onto the west shoul- der up an embankment where it came to rest. Sot then allegedly fled on foot and was apprehended ap- proximately 500 feet from his vehicle by CHP officers. He was uninjured. Possible DUI, July 16 Lawerence Hendershot, 67, of Quincy was seen driving his 1985 Toyota pickup into the Relay Gas Station in Quincy by ~b:w~tnesses at the Relay Station. When pulling into the sta- tion, Hendershot allegedly hit a few trash cans and almost caused a collision with a parked vehicle at the gas sta- tion. Hendershot was report- ed as a possible drunk driver and CHP responded to find Hendershot allegedly walking and stumbling around the back of the Relay Station. Hendershot was queStned, given field sobriety tests and arrested by CHP. There were no injuries. Too much weight, July 16 W. A. Lewis, 37, of Greenville was driving his 1984 Chevro- let Scottsdale southbound on SR-89, south of the Wolf Creek Undercrossing. Lewis was traveling at approximately 25 mph while towing a trailer loaded with firewood. Lewis allegedly pulled to the right hand shoulder of south- bound SR-89 to allow faster traf- fic to pass. As his vehicle left the pavement, the forward mo- mentum of the loaded trailer pushed his truck in a southerly direction until both truck and trailer went down an embank- ment to the west of SR-89. Lewis's truck overturned and came to rest on its roof, while the trailer remained up- right and loaded. Lewis was unharmed.

CHP reported Peplow took the curve too wide and exited the roadway onto the south shoulder in the gravel. Pe- plow tried to correct her vehi- cle by turning it to the left, but overcorrected, causing her vehicle to cross both the east and westbound lanes. The front of her vehicle struck the rock embankment and the momentum of the ve- hicle caused it to spin around in a counterclockwise direc- tion. The rear of the vehicle then struck the embankment and continued to rotate. The vehicle crossed the west- bound lane and stopped in the eastbound lane. The vehicle was completely destroyed and a tow truck was needed to remove the ve- hicle. Both Peplow and her pas- senger, Daniel Youra, 20, also of Chic, were taken to Plumas District Hospital for moderate injuries, Unsafe speed, July 22 Stanley Moultn, 57, of Quincy was driving a 19.89 Jeep Wrangler, northbound, stopped at the stop sign on First Street at the intersec- tion of East Main Street. Jessika Staggs, 20, also of Quincy was driving a borrowed 1995 Honda Civic eastbound on East Main Street, at a speed of approximately 35 mph.Virginia Rangel, 21, also of Quincy, was a passenger in her car. Staggs allegedly chose to abruptly turn onto south- bound First Street. As Staggs approached the intersection, she initiated an abrupt move- ment to the right and applied the brakes. Due to Staggs' alleged un- safe speed and unsafe turn- ing movement, the front of the vehicle traveled through the southbound lane and in- to the northbound lane where Moulton was stopped waiting to make a left hand turn onto westbound East Main Street. The front bumper collided with the left front tire of Moulton's vehicle. There were no injuries. Attention diverted, July 22 An unnamed minor, 17, was traveling southbound on Oak- land Camp Road, approxi- mately 2 miles north of Chan- dler Road, in a 1985 Chevrolet S-10 at a stated speed of 35 mph. The minor reached back to retrieve his iPod that he left on his toolbox in the bed of the pickup. According to CHP, the vehi- cle to drifted left and the left front of the vehicle collided with a large pine tree along the east roadway edge. The vehicle came to rest facing a southeasterly direction. The minor was taken to Plumas District Hospital for minor injuries. ices en to be held A memorial service for Sen.
