CHP Incident: Chappuis Lane Collision Injures Four

The Susanville office of the California Highway Patrol has released details surrounding a Saturday collision near Standish that sent four people to the hospital with injuries sustained in the crash.

According to CHP Public Information Officer Kristen Wilburn, units from her agency, along with EMS personnel, responded to the intersection of Lake Leavitt Road and Chappuis Lane for a two-vehicle traffic collision with major injuries late Saturday afternoon.

Shortly before 5:00p.m., the driver of a VW Passat, identified by CHP as 30-year old Chilcoot resident Nicholas Zimmerman, and his 2-year old passenger, were traveling southbound on Chappuis Lane.

“As Zimmerman approached the intersection with Lake Leavitt Road,” explained Officer Wilburn, “he failed to yield to an eastbound Dodge Ram pickup driven by 18-year old Riley Fletcher of Standish.” Fletcher’s passenger in the vehicle was an unidentified 17-year old Susanville resident.

According to the CHP report Zimmerman’s vehicle entered the intersection and was struck on the right side.

Zimmerman, who CHP officers report was not wearing his seatbelt, sustained major injuries and was transported by helicopter to Renown Medical Center. He is listed in critical condition.

Zimmerman’s unidentified 2-year old passenger, who was secured in a child safety seat, sustained significant injuries but is listed in stable condition at
Renown Medical Center.

Fletcher and his passenger both sustained moderate injuries and were transported to Banner Lassen Medical Center.

“CHP would like to take this opportunity to stress the importance of wearing seat belts and using child safety seats,” said Officer Wilburn. “For assistance with the proper installation of child safety seats, contact your local CHP office.”
