Lassen County, CA: Many Injuries Reported After Five-Vehicle Crash in Susanville
Lassen County, California (March 21, 2018): Authorities have launched an active investigation into a multi-vehicle collision on Highway 395 near the Laver Crossing in Susanville, CA, early Saturday night, March 17, 2018. Officials believe the accident was initiated just after 8:30 p.m. when the driver of a northbound Ford Excursion, 79-year-old Albert Satterla, lost control of his vehicle, veered into oncoming traffic and collided head-on with Toyota Corolla carrying two occupants—Stacey Mayhood and Nicole Rathmanner, both 47 years old.
Satterla’s Ford was then rear-ended by a southbound truck, driven by 49-year-old Troy Hague. Hague’s truck was then hit by a northbound Lexus, driven by 21-year-old Sarah Johnson. A northbound Chevrolet, driven by 25-year-old Lotonuu Vaimasanuu, then crashed into Johnson’s Lexus. All identified parties were injured in the collision, with the injuries ranging in severity from minor to moderate. They were all transported from the scene to nearby hospitals for further medical attention. It is unclear whether there were any additional individuals involved in the collision and no further details have been provided while the investigation remains ongoing.
