Shasta County, CA (October 23, 2018) – California Highway Patrol investigated a crash off Highway 299 in eastern Shasta County Tuesday, October 23rd, that left one female passenger dead and five other occupants injured. According to officials, the driver of a sports utility vehicle, identified as 21-year-old Elida Tooley of Burney, was driving westbound on Highway 299 near the Pit No. 1 Powerhouse when her vehicle veered off the highway shortly after 5:30 p.m. CHP said the vehicle rolled over multiple times, and the deceased woman was ejected from the SUV as she was not wearing her seatbelt.
