Fatal Crash Near Shingletown Remains Under Investigation

The CHP still seeks witnesses for a fatal crash west of Shingletown Sunday afternoon. A little after 3 O’clock, a 2005 GMC Envoy was eastbound on Highway 44 near Boulder Ridge Trail when the driver lost control on a curve, crossed the opposing lane, left the road and collided with a telephone pole. The pole sheared off at the base and the SUV kept going until it struck a Pine tree. The unidentified driver was wearing a seatbelt, but he suffered major injuries and died at the scene. Anyone who saw it happen or can provide any information is urged to call the CHP at 225-0500.
