Single vehicle rollover crash on Mt. Hough Road

The California Highway Patrol released a report this afternoon, May 26, for a rollover incident that resulted in an arrest May 24.

According to the CHP, Russell Jennings, 68, of Quincy was driving his Dodge Dakota pickup southbound on Mt. Hough Road approaching the railroad tracks around noon on May 24.

And according to the report, due to a combination of his level of intoxication and unsafe speed, Jennings lost control of his vehicle while traversing a curve to his left. His vehicle struck the east embankment of the roadway, traveled up the embankment and then back down the embankment onto Mt. Hough Road.  The pickup crossed the road and descended the embankment on the west side of Mt. Hough Road.  The vehicle traveled down the embankment where it rolled onto its left side.

A USFS employee came upon the collision and noticed the pickup was still steaming.  He climbed down the embankment and found that both Jennings and his dog, Dixie, were uninjured.  Officer McAllister was dispatched to the scene and after an investigation he placed Jennings under arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol.
