On December 5, 2015 Jeremy Simpson, 26 of Meadow Valley,CA was driving a 2007 gray Pontiac G6 eastbound on Bucks Lake Rd. east of Slate Creek Rd at a stated speed of “way less than 55 mph.” Bucks Lake Road was very icy in numerous locations and Plumas County Roads Dept. had deposited aggregate material on the roadway at about 6:30 a.m. to afford passing traffic better traction on the icy roadway. As Simpson exited a right hand curve in the roadway and entered a straight-away, the tires of his vehicle lost traction on the icy roadway. The G6 began rotating in a clockwise direction and slid off the roadway and onto the south dirt shoulder. The G6 had almost rotated 180 degres then traveling backwards, when the left side of the G6 impacted with the mountainside on the south shoulder. After this impact, the G6 continued rotating and came to rest facing northwest on the south dirt shoulder of Bucks Lake Rd. Simpson was able to exit the G6 and waited for emergency personnel to arrive and was taken to Plumas District Hospital.
