According to CHP officer E. Logan, Miranda Spang, 36,  driving eastbound on Highway 70, lost control of her vehicle just east of the bridge and the vehicle traveled off the north edge of the road. The vehicle rolled over and came to rest down the embankment against a tree.
Witnesses said a 6-year-old girl was able to exit the vehicle with the aid of a passerby, while the driver was removed after emergency personnel used the jaws of life. Spang told emergency personnel she felt a lot of pain, and she remained conscious during the rescue from the crashed vehicle.
A Mountain Lifeflight helicopter transported Spang to Enloe Medical Center in Chico, and the girl was taken by ambulance to Plumas District Hospital, where her grandmother was directed to meet her.
