Another fatal crash in Siskiyou County involved a driver not wearing a seatbelt. Tuesday afternoon, Yreka and Mount Shasta Area CHP was sent to Highway 97 near the Living Memorial Park. They found a Ford F-150 pickup about 150 feet from the road with nobody inside. Officers searched around and found a deceased man nearby. He apparently has been northbound when the pickup left the road and overturned. The unsecured driver was ejected and died of his injuries.
