2B Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2001 Newspaper policy Information that appears in this column is compiled from the California Highway Patrol activity logs in Quincy and, in some cases, Susanville. The fact that someone has been in- volved in an automobile acci- dent does not constitute liabili- ty or fault. In addition, the re- porting CHP agency deter- mines whether injuries in the accident are characterized as minor, moderate or major. Fatality A Janesville resident was killed and two children re- ceived major injuries in a sin- gle-car incident on Highway 89 near the Greenville Wye Thursday, Dec. 28, at 7:10 p.m, Bruce D. Scarborough, 38, was driving his 1986 Toyota Supra southbound on High- way 89 approaching Highway 70 at the Wye. As he rounded a sharp right hand curve, he lost control of his vehicle and it skidded off the road and collided with a large In" tree. Scarborough was killed on impact when the tree crushed the driver's side of the car. Charles Scarborough, 9, was seated in the back seat, just behind his father, and the roof caved in around him, accord- ing to the CHP report. Noel Scarborough, 12, and Charles received major in- juries and were air flighted to Enloe Hospital in ChAco. Charles was later transferred to U.C. Davis Medical in Sacramento. According to the CHP, Noel was able to free herself from the vehicle and seek help at the Wye. All three were wearing their seat belts, which are credited with having saved the girl, and possibly mini- mized the injuries the little boy received, according to the CHP. Tests are being conducted to determine the speed the vehi- cle was traveling at the time the driver lost control. The corner is posted for 30 mph. According to the report, there is evidence the vehicle was traveling at a higher rate of speed. Bucks Lake road Minor injuries were report- ed in a single-vehicle incident on Bucks Lake Road west of Rock Creek Bridge Thursday, Dec. 28, at 3 p.m. Sharleen Bloom, 49, of QtTin- cy, was traveling eastbound on Bucks Lake Road in a 1997 Ford Explorer. She attempted to negotiate a left hand curve when she lost control of the vehicle. It overturned and came to rest on its top in the west- bound lane. Bloom said she would seek her own aid. Two eight-year-old passen- gers were not injured. All passengers were safely seat-belted. Road 25N41, .8 miles north of Highway 70. While traveling at approxi- mately 20 mph he entered a gradual left turn in the road- way. There was gravel on the road, and that, combined with the speed~and the inexperi- ence of the driger, made it im- possible for him to maintain control of the vehicle. It slid off the left side of the road and rolled approximately 90 feet down a 45 percent grade. The driver suffered a lacera- tion to the right eye and head. Jason Antwane, 28, of Quincy, suffered injuries to his right shoulder, and a second 16 year old received a broken right clavicle. All three were taken to Plumas District Hospital for treatment. The use of seat belts helped minimize the injuries. Private Road No injuries were reported when a 1995 Suzuki Sidekick rolled backward and struck a 2000 Chevy Malibu Monday, Dec. 25, at noon. Colette McCleery, 39, of Por- tola, parked her Suzuki at a residence on Sylvan Road. She didn't set her parking brake and it rolled backward and into another parked vehi- cle. U.$.

The newspaper does not report suspects' names in arrests for public intoxication or drunk driving (unless accompanied by a more serious charge). The fact that someone has been ar- rested and charged with a crime does not constitute guilt. The case may never appear in court if the district attorney de- termines there is insufficient evidence to prosecute the case.

NewsPaper policy The following cases indicate processing by the Plumas County Superior Court. The in- formation is obtained through the court and the district attor- ney's office. The dates printed reflect time of processing, al- though the incident in question may have occurred years earli- er. The fact that someone has been charged with a crime and is being processed for it does not constitute guilt under the California court system. If the district attorney determines there is insufficient evidence to continue prosecuting the case, it may be dismissed or the charges may be amended. In some cases plea bargaining al- so is permitted by the court and the district attorney.
