Photo courtesy Quincy CHP CHP REPORT The following incidents are submitted by the Quincy Area California Highway Patrol as a tentativesummarypending the oondusion of the investigation(s). Highway 70, May 8 Linda Lupis, 67, of Portola, was driving her 2003 Ford eastbound on Highway 70. The driver was returning home from a wedding in Graeagle. At approximately 8:30 p.m., she was west of Delleker Park Drive and traveling at a stated speed of 55 mph. A deer entered the roadway from the north shoulder, directly into the path of her vehicle. Lupis was unable to avoid the animal, and the front left corner of her car hit the deer. As a result of the collision both of the car's airbags deployed. The driver cleared the airbag from her field of view and brought the Ford to a safe stop on the south shoulder of the highway. A passing motorist stopped to provide assistance and called 911. The driver was not under the influence, and had not been using her cellphone at the time of the accident. She was wearing her safety belt and was uninjured. Highway 70, May 11 At about 11:39 a.m., Mark Stanton, 54, of Biggs, was driving his girlfriend's gray 2003 GMC 2500 pickup truck with his friend's 2006 Carson flatbed trailer in tow. The trailer was loaded with a Kubota tractor. Stanton was traveling eastbound on Highway 70 at a stated speed of 25 mph approaching Belden Town when he entered a road construction queue. According to a witness, Stanton had been driving erratically for several miles, including crossing over the double yellow lines, driving on the shoulder and varying speeds. As Stanton was driving through a moderate left-hand curve, he allowed the pickup and trailer to drift off the roadway and onto the south dirt shoulder. The right side fender of the trailer glanced into a metal guardrail on the south shoulder. This caused no damage to the guardrail, but left a black paint transfer and tire scuffs from the trailer on the guardrail. The trailer received minor damage to its right fender. Stanton said he knew he'd hit the guardrail because he "saw a puffof dust," but did not stop to check for damage. He had lunch in Belden Town and continued east on Highway 70. When he turned north onto Highway 89 at the Greenville Wye, Stanton was stopped by CHP as a result of the witness calling in the collision. Stanton had been wearing his seat belt at the time and was not injured. 00U00co00:u:rV0000en00 ..o,.
