Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, March 31, 2010 5B ' " CHP REPORT Snowmobile, March 20 Thomas Gossett, 42, of Quincy was riding a 2007 Bombardier snowmobile up a steep mountainside near Jamison Lake. According to CHP, when Gossett realized he wasn't going to make it to the top of the mountain, he started to turn around and head back down. Gossett then decided he didn't have enough speed to turn around safely. He tried to turn back up the hill and "stick" the snowmobile in the snow. The snowmobile lost all momentum, stopped then K-9 Cassie moves on Retired Plumas County K-9 Cassie passed on to follow new tracks Sunday, March 14. Born Feb. 18, 1998, she was registered Cassie the Queen, a black Lab that was the loyal partner of former Deputy Don Sheffield. She retired in 2002, after more than five years of ser- vice with the Plumas County Sheriff's Office. When she was just 6 months old, Deputy Sheffield noticed her aptitude for always wanting to find a ball. With this he started her training as a drug detection dog and tracker. At 18 months old, she was certified as a K-9, and so began her years of service. Thanks to Cassie many illegal dugs were taken off the streets of Plumas County and she found several miss- ing persons. In the course of her service she was also called to serve other departments and prisons to help out when needed. In a combined effort be- tween the sheriff's depart- ment and the California Highway Patrol, Cassie was a regular in the ODD patrol car, staffed by an officer, a deputy and a dog. The trio included the late CHP Officer Paul Baker, Sheffield and Cassie. This joint unit was com- bined on occasions that war- ranted the extra effort in keeping residents of the county safe. Always in the back seat of the patrol car, Cassie was not very willing to share her area.

Gossett received moderate injuries and was transferred to Eastern Plumas District Hospital. Drift, March 22 Jason Ellenberger, 33, of Los Molinas was driving a 1999 Ford F250 eastbound on SR-70, just east of the tunnels. Ellenberger allowed his vehicle to travel off the roadway onto the dirt/rock shoulder. CHP determined the right side of the vehicle struck the rock, ascended the embankment and rotated clockwise before coming to rest facing southeast and blocking the eastbound lane of SR-70. Ellenberger was uninjured. Warning Cone, March 23 David Cuneo, 52, of Quincy, was driving a 2004 Interna- tional tank truck loaded with approximately 2,500 gallons of propane westbound on SR-70, just west of West's Ranch Road at a stated speed of 50 mph. Andrea Hughes, 25, also of Quincy, was driving a 1999 Chevy Cavalier westbound on SR-70, also just west of West's Ranch Road, approxi- mately two car lengths behind Cuneo at a stated speedof 47 - 48 mph. Both drivers noticed traffic cones on the north shoulder of SR-70 very close to the white edge line near a road construction warning sign. According to CHP, as Cuneo neared the cones, his vehicle began to drift over the white edge line. The right rear tire impacted with a traffic cone which caused the cone to tumble out into the west- bound lane of traffic and di- rectly into Hughes' path. Hughes saw Cuneo drift over the white edge line, tlie tire impact with the cone and the cone tumble out into the lane and saw oncoming traffic that precluded her from swerving to the left to avoid the cone and the road construction warning sign on the north shoulder precluded her from swerving to the right. Hughes forcefully applied her brakes in an attempt to avoid striking the traffic cone, but could not stop in time. The right front corner of her vehicle impacted with the traffic cone. No injuries were reported.
