LASSEN COUNTY, Calif. - The California Highway Patrol says a man was killed when his vehicle rolled over several times on Little Valley Road in Lassen County Friday night.


According to CHP, at around 10 p.m. the driver of a 2001 Dodge 1500, James E. Clair, 37, of Spaulding was northbound on Little Valley Road, south of Pittville Road when he allowed his Dodge to travel on the east dirt shoulder.


Clair with his passenger Angel L. Thompson, 40, of Susanville then lost control, continued to drive on the road, crossing both lanes and into the opposite shoulder where his Dodge rolled over several times.


Clair was ejected from his seat and died as a result, while Thompson was wearing her seatbelt and was not ejected.


Thompson was sent to Mercy Medical Center for moderate injuries.


Authorities suspect that drugs or alcohol were factors into the crash.

The first weekend of autumn was pleasant for northern California, but our relatively tranquil weather will change soon. A Pacific storm is approaching the West Coast, and it will bring our area rain showers and gusty wind soon.
