CHP REPORT Loss of Control, Feb. 5 Pamela Burson, 48, of Graeagle, was driving east- bound on SR-70 east of C Road at approximately 45-50 mph in a 1996 Geo Tracker. CHP reported that as Bur- son traversed a curve to the right, she lost control of her vehicle on the slippery road- way. The vehicle crossed over the westbound lane and struck the embankment on the north shoulder twice be- fore rolling onto its left side and coming to rest facing a southerly direction. Burson complained of pain but refused medical treatment at the scene. Icy roadway, Feb. 5 Federico Garcia, 57, of Por- tola, was traveling westbound on SR-70 in a 1997 Jeep Chero- kee at approximately 45-50 mph when the rear tires al- legedly broke traction with the icy roadway. As the vehicle began to skid and rotate in a counter clock- wise direction, Garcia made an abrupt right-hand turning movement that caused the ve- hicle to swerve to the right. The vehicle continued to skid and rotate in a counter-clock- wise direction across the east- bound lane and off onto the south shoulder, where it struck a two-foot high snow berm and overturned onto its right side. No injuries were reported. Alleged DUI, Feb. 5 Dean Griffin, 36, of Calpine, was driving a 1998 Dodge Du- rango north on County Road A23, south of Calpine Road, at what CHP termed "an appar- ent high rate of speed." According to CHP, due to his alleged state of intoxica- tion, Griffin allowed his vehi- cle to drift onto the gravel shoulder on the east side of the roadway. After drifting onto the shoulder, Griffin made an unsafe turning movement and lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle drove into the opposing southbound lane be- fore Griffin allegedly turned back to the right causing the vehicle to rotate in a clock- wise manner as it veered off the east side of the roadway. The vehicle then impacted a fence and began to roll over. While continuing to roll over, it impacted a second fence be- fore coming to rest on its left side, facing southeast, in the field on the east side of the roadway. Griffin suffered major in- juries and was taken by Care Flight to Renown Medical Center.
