   These are the stories you will find in this week's newspaper:
  • Unforgettable experience: Forest Service officer Chris Holland knew something seemed strange when he came across a man digging a shallow hole in the woods three years ago. What he discovered was unforgettable.
  • Suicide prevented: Thanks to police and mental health workers, a man who stood on the edge of the Spanish Creek Bridge for more than two hours didn’t jump.
  • Dig could be delayed: The sheriff said he will discover what lies at the bottom of a Meadow Valley well — he’s just not sure how to pay for it or when it will happen.

Man dies in vehicle roll over

At approximately 5:47 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10, emergency crews responded to a single vehicle accident on Highway 147 that claimed the life of a Westwood man.

According to the California Highway Patrol, a 54-year-old man, who has not yet been identified, was traveling southbound on Highway 147 near the Hamilton Branch over crossing in his 1995 Honda Civic.

The driver had just passed a vehicle in excess of the 55-mile-per hour speed limit.

As the man began to negotiate the approaching curve to the left he lost control of the vehicle and began an out of control counter clockwise spin and crossed the opposing lane.

The vehicle traveled up the embankment colliding with a large rock.

The vehicle then overturned and ejected the man, who CHP says was not wearing his seatbelt.

Both the victim and the car landed in the roadway.
