BIGGS, Calif. – A Gridley man is in the hospital after a major crash in east Biggs on Saturday.

CHP and emergency personnel responded around 6:10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8, to a single-vehicle collision in East Biggs. CHP learned the involved vehicle had collided with a bridge and rolled over into a ditch and was possibly on fire.

Before arriving, emergency crews said they located the driver, later identified as 19-year-old Randy Wayne Miller, II, being tended to by residents, northwest of the collision. The residents extracted Miller from his vehicle as it was catching on fire – Miller, at the time, was still seat belted inside the car unconscious.

The CHP says Miller was driving a pickup truck heading south on Mead Ave approaching a bridge. Due to Miller being intoxicated he lost control of his truck crashing into the guardrail, sustaining major injuries as a result, according to investigators.

According to CHP officers, it was determined that Miller was under the influence of alcohol after evidence was found at the scene of the collision, witnesses' statements, and Miller’s observed signs and symptoms of intoxication.

As a result of the collision, Miller was placed under arrest for a DUI. However, since Miller sustained major injuries he was not formally booked into the Butte County Jail and was released to Enloe Medical Center for treatment.
