Rainy conditions appear to be a factor in a pair crashes that left one person dead late near Castella late Wednesday night.

Donald Shepherd, an 86-year-old Fort Jones man was killed when he lost control of his 1995 Ford and rolled over on northbound Interstate 5.

As officers were responding, four other vehicle became tied up in a second crash, just north of the initial rollover. None of the other drivers were injured.

Investigators say rainy conditions were a factor in both of the crashes, but the investigation is ongoing. I-5 northbound was closed for over an hour.
