CHP Reports Major Injury Crash On I-5 In Siskiyou County

A rollover crash resulted in major injuries in Siskiyou County Thursday night. At 9:22PM a Kia Rio was northbound on Interstate 5 south of Louie Road driven by Michael Chandler of Weed. Chandler lost control of the small car for unknown reasons and it went into the freeway median, overturning multiple times. A passenger in the back seat was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected when the car rolled. That passenger, another passenger and Chandler all suffered major injuries. The Yreka Area CHP says last year in their patrol area they had six fatal crashes, and in five of them the deceased had not been wearing a seatbelt.
