CHP Incident: One Dead, Two Injured in US 395 Head-On Collision

The driver of a 2008 Nissan, who had been reported as a reckless driver just minutes earlier, was killed Friday night, and two Fremont, California residents were injured in a head-on collision that occurred south of Old Milford Highway on US 395.

According to details provided by the California Highway Patrol, at around 9:00 their Susanville dispatch center received reports of a reckless driver on the highway and units were dispatched.

At this point they received citizen reports of a head-on traffic collision involving the reported Nissan and a northbound Tesla.

“The Nissan had crossed into the northbound lane and struck the Tesla head-on,” explains CHP Public Information Officer Bruce Thuelchassaigne. “Upon arrival, CHP, and responding emergency personnel located multiple parties with major injuries.”

The two injured occupants of the Tesla were transported by air ambulance to Renown Hospital in Reno.

The CHP identified the two as Fremont, California residents Zhang Xiaoming and Li Zhi.

“The driver of the Nissan, who was unrestrained, succumbed to their injuries sustained in the collision on-scene.” His name is being withheld pending notification of family.

According to Thuelchassaigne the collision is currently under investigation.
