On November 21, 2022, at approximately 0920 hours, Kolby Elzea of Taylorsville, CA, was driving a 2016 Mack concrete truck westbound on SR-70, just west of Camp Layman Road, at approximately 50 MPH. Elzea allowed the truck to drift to the right, onto the north dirt/rock shoulder. Elzea steered the truck to the left to drive back onto the paved roadway, but overcorrected. As a result, the truck overturned onto its right side and slid in a southwesterly direction across SR-70 before coming to a stop on the south shoulder. Elzea was transported from the scene by Careflight Ground Ambulance to Nervino Airport in Sierra Valley where he was flown by helicopter to Renown Medical Center. The collision remains under investigation.
The mission of the CHP is to provide the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security.
