Greenville Man Arrested After Highway 89 Accident

A Greenville man was arrested Sunday after he allegedly lost control of his 2000 Jeep Wrangler on Highway 89 because he was both intoxicated and distracted by his dog.

According to the report from the California Highway Patrol’s Susanville office, a man identified as 66-year old Greenville resident Jack Michael Hill was driving northbound on the highway when his dog caused a distraction within the vehicle.

As Hill’s dog was occupying his attention, a 2018 Ford F250 driven by 77-year old Chester resident Marvin E. Huff Jr., was approaching in the southbound lane.

“Due to his level of intoxication, coupled with the distraction of his dog,” the report reads, “Mr. Hill suddenly turned his Jeep to the left, directly in the path of Mr. Huff.”

The Jeep struck the left side of the F250 then continued across the roadway before overturning.

Huff attempted to control his truck but was unable to and it slid to the southeast edge of the highway, then struck a tree.

Hill received major injuries in the crash. Huff sustained moderate in juries and his passenger, identified as 75-year old Steve Huff of Napa, California, suffered major injuries.

All three were transported to Seneca Hospital in Chester.
