A 71-year-old Quincy man was listed in critical condition Monday morning after crashing his truck Saturday night, May 17.

Earnest Daniel “Danny” Leonhardt was driving his 2006 Dodge Ram eastbound on Lee Road, just east of Sierra Park Drive, at an unknown speed.

The California Highway Patrol press release stated: “For reasons unknown, Leonhardt allowed his vehicle to drift across the westbound lane and onto the north shoulder.”

The vehicle subsequently overturned and came to rest on its roof on the north shoulder facing an easterly direction.

The report stated Leonhardt was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the 10:32 p.m. crash and he suffered major injuries.

He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and was released to Plumas District Hospital for treatment of his injuries. Later, Leonhardt was care-flighted to Enloe hospital in Chico where he remains in critical condition.
