4B Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2001 Bulietin, Progressive, New mixw Information that appears in this column is compiled from the California High- way Patrol activity logs in Quincy and, in some cases, Susanville. The fact that someone has been involved in an automobile accident does not constitute liability or fault. In addition, the reporting CHP agency de- termines whether injuries in the accident are charac- terized as minor, moderate, major or fataL Hi.way 70, at Um E ttee No injuries were reported when two vehicles were in- volved in an incident Sun- day, Dec. 2, at 12:25 p.m. Vernon C. Nissley, 53, of Chilcoot, was driving a 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass east- bound on Highway 70 at 30 miles per hour on the Buttes east of Maddelina Road. Scott E. Wach, 22, of Reno, was driving a 1995 Toyota pickup in the same direction at the same speed. The roadway was covered with snow and ice, and it was still snowing. Wach was following the Oldsmobile. Nissley started slowing for traWm ahead of him. Wach started to slow down and applied the brakes. But the pickup went into a locked-wheel skid on the snow and ice. Because Wach was driving too fast for the road condi- tions and was driving too close to the Oldsmobile, the pickup skidded into the rear of Nissley's vehicle. The Oldsmobile sustained moderate damage to the rear end. The pickup sustained minor damage to the front end. Nissley and his four pas- sengers, all of Chilcoot, were all wearing their seat belts. Wach and his passenger were also seat-belted.

Prior to entering a curve, he lost control of the Isuzu and it began to slide to the left. He attempted to counter steer in an attempt to regain control of the vehicle. It then traveled back to the right and went off the road- way and down an embank- ment. The vehicle continued down the embankment until it struck a tree and eventual- ly came to a stop after hitting a rock. Montgomery and his two passengers, Brian D. Beam, 18, and Sam L. Siler, 19, were able to walk up the embank- ment and down to the inter- section of Bucks Lake Road. There, they caught a ride back into Quincy, where Montgomery told his mother about the incident.
