A teenager is dead and another man is seriously injured in two separate accidents involving off-road vehicles in Shasta County. The first accident happened just before 7:30 last night on a dirt road near Highway 299 just east of Goose Valley Road in Burney. The California Highway Patrol says Cody Munson, 22, was under the influence of alcohol and was driving his ATV with a 17-year-old girl on the back when he lost control. Both Munson and the girl were thrown from the bike and the girl died at the scene. Munson received moderate injuries.
The second accident happened about an hour later on Lakeshore Drive near Lakehead. Investigators say Jason Rogers was driving his Polaris Ranger 800 with three people in the bed of the truck. One of the men fell out of the truck and suffered major head trauma. Alcohol is believed to be involved in this accident as well.
