One way controlled trraffic remains in effect at the site of the accident. CanTrans sent a geologist to the site to assess the damage. Crews worked through the night.

12/10/2010 Updated 4:30 p.m.
A female motorist driving an older model van was killed about 3 p.m. when her van struck a boulder that apparently tumbled onto Highway 70 about three miles east of Belden,in the Feather River Canyon.

Emergency personnel first on the scene performed CPR, but were unable to revive the victim.


According to Will Farris, Feather Publishing reporter on the scene, it appeared the victim was killed on impact. He described the boulder as looking more like a slab of the mountain.

The highway is open to one-way controlled traffic.

CalTrans engineers will have to assess the stability of the hillside as well as the integrity of the road bed which is thought to be heavily damnaged.
