Lassen County Rollover Crash Left One Person Killed and Two Injured

LASSEN COUNTY, CA (August 27, 2021) A fatal rollover crash in US-395 claimed the life of Cheryl Dodgin and left two other people injured on Tuesday.

The CHP in Susanville reported the incident around 4 P.M. on the northbound US-395 in the north of Deep Cut Road.

According to the report, the vehicle of 55-year-old Robert Sisk of Burney drifted into the southbound lanes while traveling north for unknown reason.

As a result, the vehicle flipped over despite the efforts of Sisk to correct its path.
