US 398, Dec. 4 Michael Kelley, 35, of Reno, Nevada, was driving his 2001 Nissan X-Tera southbound. His speed was 62 mph. At 6:42 a.m. the weather was clear, but the road was covered in ice. Just north of Pozzolan Road, Ashe felt the vehicle begin to fishtail to the right. He corrected left, then right but the Nissan slid off of the roadway. The car hit a perimeter fence and overturned. The X-Tera came to rest on its right side. Kelley was able to extract himself from the Nissan. He had been wearing his seat belt and was uninjured. The cause of this collision is still under investigation. Highway 70, Dec. 4 This single-car accident occurred west of Squirrel Creek Road. It was about 10:20 p.m. and the weather was clear and cold. Gary Prehn, 64, of Redwood City was driving his white 2013 Honda Pilot westbound. As Prehn was negotiating a curve, he lost control of the vehicle. The Pilot crossed the eastbound lane of the highway, to the south shoulder. Then the vehicle went down the steep embankment and landed on its roof. The driver had been wearing a seat belt. He sustained minor injuries, but was able to get out of the vehicle. A passerby stopped to help and alerted emergency services personnel. This accident is still being investigated. Bucks Lake Road, Dec. 5 About 6:58 a.m., Jeremy Simpson, 26, of Meadow Valley was driving his gray 2007 Pontiac G6 eastbound. The road was very icy. Plumas County Roads Department had deposited aggregate material on the road at about 6 a.m. to afford passing traffzc better traction. Simpson's stated speed was "way less than 55 mph." Just east of Slate Creek Road, the driver exited a right hand curve and entered a straightaway. The Pontiac tires lost traction and the car began rotating clockwise. It slid off of the road and onto the south dirt shoulder. By this time the G6 had almost spun 180 degrees and was traveling backwards. The left side of the car hit the mountainside on the south shoulder. The car continued to rotate. It finally came to rest on the south dirt shoulder, facing northwest. Simpson had been wearing his seat belt and received only minor injuries. He exited the car and waited for emergency personnel to arrive. The driver was treated for minor injuries at Plumas District Hospital in Quincy. Quincy, Dec. 9 Joshue Neff, 24, of Portola, was backing up a 2009 UPS delivery truck westbound on Cate Street. He was just west of East Street and moving at a stated 10 mph. It was about 7:30 p.m. and raining. A white 1991 GMC Sierra 2500 pickup facing west was parked on the south shoulder of Cate Street. Neff failed to see the Sierra. The right rear handrail on the van hit the right rear corner of the Sierra's bumper. This caused minor damage to both vehicles. Neff and a passenger had been wearing seat belts and were not injured. The UPS driver made an unsuccessful search for the owner of the Sierra. He then reported the accident to his supervisor and continued making his deliveries for the day. The next morning, neighbors told the truck owner about collision and that UPS was trying to find him.

See CliP, page 5B. Workers begin to pull the badly damaged 2001 Toyota Tundra pick-up belonging to Carlos Arevalo from the bottom of an embankment near the Spring Garden Overhead off of Highway 70 on Thursday afternoon, Dec. 10. Photo by Dan McDonald near Man went missing on Nov. 23 Dan McDonald Managing Editor A Portola man missing since Nov. 23 was found dead Thursday afternoon, Dec. 10, off of Highway 70 about five miles east of Quincy. Carlos Arevalo, 30, appeared to have died in a single-vehicle accident. He was found behind the wheel of his 2001 Toyota Tundra truck that was upside down at the bottom of a steep embankment off the roadway below the concrete wall of the Spring Garden Overhead. According to the California Highway Patrol, the truck was not visible from the highway. It was discovered just after I p.m. on Dec. 10 by a railroad worker who was inspecting tracks on the north side of the river in the canyon. The worker called 911 to report seeing an overturned truck that was sitting in approximately two feet of water in Greenhorn Creek at the bottom of a steep embankment off of Highway 70. A CHP unit responded to the scene about seven minutes after the 911 call and identified Arevalo's truck. The cause of the crash is under investigation by the CHP. However, according to CHP spokesman Officer Jeff Rood, Arevalo appeared to have been driving eastbound when the accident occurred. "It looks like he hit a section of guardrail," Rood Carlos Arevalo said. "But we don't have any definite answers yet. It is still part of the investigation." Arevalo was last seen at 6 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 23, in the parking lot at the Bordertown Casino on Highway 395 north of Reno near the California and Nevada state line. He reportedly met his girlfriend there to exchange some paperwork for a vehicle he had sold her. He was expected to return to his Portola residence, but never showed up. After five days of not hearing from him, Arevalo's family filed a missing person report with the Plumas County Sheriff. The sheriff, CHP and Nevada Highway Patrol began actively searching for signs of Arevalo's truck between Bordertown and Portola. According to the CHP, Arevalo's cell phone was last pinged in the Sierra Valley Area near A-23 or A-24 around midnight on Nov. 23. The night of Nov. 23, a severe winter storm hit the area, bringing high winds and snow.
