Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, April 15, 2015 3B LAW and ORDER CHP REPORT The following incidents are submitted by the Quincy Area California Highway Patrol as a tentative summarypending the conclusion of the investigation(s). Slate Creek Road, April 2 Lawrence McKee, 47, of Quincy was driving his silver 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee southbound on Slate Creek Road, south of Bucks Lake Road, at a stated speed of 25 mph. He reported that at about 9 p.m. the rear of his vehicle skidded out to the left. The driver attempted to regain control of his vehicle by counter-steering to the left, but over-corrected, which caused the Jeep to travel off of the east road edge and slightly up a dirt embankment. McKee steered the vehicle to the right, causing the vehicle to travel in a southwesterly direction, back across the roadway. The Jeep traveled off of the west road edge and down a steep dirt embankment where it roiled over and came to rest on its wheels. McKee exited the vehicle, walked home and returned to the scene the following morning. He reported he had been wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident and received minor injuries. LaPorte Road, April 3 At approximately 5 p.m Michael Flynn, 53, of Meridian, was riding a black 2005 Honda Shadow Sabre motorcycle southbound on LaPorte Road, in Onion Valley, at an undetermined, but unsafe speed for the roadway. Just after Flynn passed the dirt road that goes to the Onion Valley Warming Hut, he came to a moderate left hand curve in the roadway. He was going too fast to negotiate it. The driver forcefully applied the brakes and the Honda entered a locked wheel skid. The motorcycle began rotating counterclockwise on the road. Driver and cycle skidded off of the roadway and onto the west dirt and gravel shoulder. Once on the shoulder, the vehicle overturned ejecting Flynn. The man was thrown a significant distance south and west of the motorcycle onto several large rocks in a small dry creek. The Honda came to rest on the west shoulder on its left side facing northwest. The rider had been Visit us at the Home & Garden Show April 2Sth Call us today!

When a passing motorist arrived a few minutes after the collision, the motorcyclists fled the scene towards the town of LaPorte. Flynn had been wearing a "half shell" type of helmet; however, the helmet was not able to protect him from a serious head injury during the collision. Flynn was transported via air ship to Renown Medical Center for treatment of major injuries. SR-284, April 4 A single car accident occurred at about 7:53 p.m. The incident involved an unknown driver in a 2006 Ford F-150 and happened on SR-284, approximately 2.5 miles north of Highway 70. The driver allowed the F-150 to drift onto the east shoulder, while proceeding through a left curve in the roadway at an undetermined speed. The truck struck two reflective roadway markers. The driver then steered the vehicle to the left, causing it to veer across the roadway and onto the west shoulder. The driver was unable to regain control of the Ford. The truck overturned, and hit a barbwire fence on the west shoulder. Afterward, the unidentified driver fled the scene. The collision remains under investigation. Highway 70, April 6 Road conditions were wet on Highway 70, east of Quarry Road, at approximately 8:55 a.m. Francisco Bernabe, 29 of Lindsay, was driving his gold 2001 Acura 3.2TL eastbound at an undetermined, but unsafe speed given the conditions. As Bernabe exited a sharp right hand curve, the Acura lost traction and began to fishtail. The driver was unable to regain control of 'the car. The vehicle skidded across the westbound lane of the highway and hit the mountainside on the north shoulder head-on. The impact deployed the frontal airbags of the Acura, saving Beruabe from injury. After the initial collision, the Acura spun around and the rear end also hit the mountainside on the north shoulder of the highway. This sent the car spinning across both lanes of the highway. It hit the guardrail on the south shoulder head-on. The Acura finally came to rest against the guardrail on the south shoulder of the highway facing southwest. Bernabe had been wearing his seat belt and that, coupled with the airbag deployment, saved him from any injury. Brought to you by: Dr. Gregory Sawyer, DDS THE TOOTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TOOTH There are two basic types of dental patients: 1) the fear- based patient, and 2) the proactive patient. The first type usually waits until they are in pain or until they experience some type of dental catastrophe. The reasons this person puts off treatment until they are in trouble are several, but all are based on fear. Fear of pain inflicted by the dentist, fear of the cost, or fear of the time in the dental chair. The problem with this approach is that by the time the patient becomes aware of something wrong in their mouth, it is usually more severe and cosily than if they had treated it earlier. It is much better to be proactive when it comes to dental issues. Get your teeth examined regularly and avoid pain and a large bill from the dentist. "Don't wait until it hurts!"
