CHP Incident: Carson City Residents Injured in Highway 395 Rollover

The California Highway Patrol has released details of a January 3rd, vehicle rollover on Highway 395 near Hicks Road that sent three Carson City residents to the hospital with moderate and major injuries.

Shortly after 1:30a.m. Wednesday, a female driver, who is unidentified by the CHP because of her age, with two male passengers in a 2000 Chevrolet were traveling southbound on U.S. 395 north of Hicks Road when a deer jumped out in front of her vehicle.

The driver swerved to the left and struck the deer in the process. The vehicle then slid sideways out of control across the northbound lane and off the roadway where it overturned several times.

The Chevrolet traveled off the highway, through a barbed wire fence and struck a tree prior to coming to rest on its roof in a field.

A passenger, identified by CHP as 19-year old Carson City resident Brian Garringer was ejected from the vehicle.

Once the vehicle came to rest the vehicle’s other passenger, 21-year old  Joseph Birri, crawled out of the Chevy and pulled the minor female from the vehicle.

The 16-year old driver received major injuries and was transported to Renown Medical Center. Her two passengers, who sustained moderate injuries in the collision, were taken to Banner Lassen.
