Authorities said the incident occurred around 5:05 p.m., on Highway 121, just north of Wooden Valley Road. Reports indicate that the collision involved two Subaru Outback station wagons.

California Highway Patrol said Matthew Premelton‘s Subaru was heading southbound on Highway 121 when it spun out of control. Eventually, it crossed into the northbound lane passenger-side first.
