Joshua P. Cooper, 33, of Quincy was driving a 2009 Jeep at approximately 5:50 p.m. and Breeze L. Tate, 51, of Blairsden was driving a 2000 Lexus sedan westbound on SR-70 east of Cooper. The conditions at the time were cold and cloudy with heavy snowfall and a snow covered roadway. Cooper lost control of the Jeep and it spun out of control, crossing into the westbound lane and into the path of the Lexus, where the two vehicles collided. Both vehicles sustained major damage. As a result of this collision, Tate sustained fatal injuries and Cooper sustained major injuries. During the course of the investigation of the collision, Cooper was suspected of driving while under the influence and was subsequently arrested. This collision is still under investigation.
