CALIFORNIA - The Shasta County Sheriff's Office says the man suspected of killing two in Shingletown has died in a Southern California crash and now his father is missing.

Officials say Daun Sanders was driving the wrong way in the southbound lanes of Interstate 15 in Ontario when he side-swiped a semi-truck. He then turned around and fled south before hitting the center median.

CHP says he then fled on foot with a puppy where he was struck by a car. Both Sanders and the puppy were pronounced dead on the I-15 scene.

Sanders was the only suspect in the Shingletown case and the investigation of the murder is ongoing.

It wasn't as hot for northern California today, but temperatures still reached seasonable summer levels and more thunderstorms sprung over our eastern counties. After one more seasonable day, hotter weather will return to our area.
