   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:

  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

A Taylorsville woman was killed Sunday night in a single-vehicle accident on Arlington Road.

Renee Hall, 43, died after the pickup truck she was driving collided with a power pole about 8:30 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP reported that Hall, who was alone in the truck, was headed eastbound toward Taylorsville “well in excess” of the posted 25 mile-per-hour speed, when she lost control of the vehicle on a slight curve in the road.

Hall’s truck crossed to the left of the double yellow lines and headed toward the westbound lane. The vehicle continued to leave tire-friction marks as it crossed back over the double-yellow lines and crossed the eastbound lane.

The truck ran off the south roadway edge of Arlington Road as it was spinning around to its right.

At that point, the report indicated the pickup had left 312 feet of tire marks on the roadway before the impact with the large power pole.

The left-rear of Hall’s truck then struck the PG&E pole with enough force to shatter the post and tear the rear axle and tire from the pickup.

The truck spun around completely as it rolled onto its left side. Hall, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was partially ejected out the driver’s-side window.

The truck came to rest on top of her.

The shattered pole fell toward Arlington Road, partially blocking the roadway with the power lines that were still attached. Power in the area was partially cut off because of the crash.

Rescue personnel were unable to immediately reach Hall because the truck was partially on top of her and power lines were touching the truck.

Hall was reportedly unresponsive to calls from the emergency crews at the scene.

After a PG&E crew declared the scene was safe, a fire-department crew rocked the truck off of Hall.

She was pronounced dead at the scene by a Plumas County Sheriff coroner at 9:56 p.m.

Arlington Road was closed by the Plumas County road department for the remainder of the night as crews replaced the power pole and restored power.

Hall was the owner of the Morning Thunder restaurant in Quincy.
