As he neared the west end of the parking lot, Train attempted to make a U-t urn. According to the California Highway Patrol, Train made the turn too sharply, lost control of the motorcycle and hit the pavement. He was evaluated by medical per- sonnel at the scene and later drove away. Train was wearing a helmet and minor injuries were reported. Rollover, June 18 At 5:30 p.m., Christina A. Cavallaro, 28, of Reno, was driving a 2002 Subaru west- bound on U.S. Forest Service Road 26N01 (Dixie Valley Road) at a stated speed of 40 mph. Cavallaro attempted to negotiate a left curve and subsequently lost control of the Subaru. The vehicle began to slide and Cavallaro attempted to regain control as it began to leave the road- way. She overcorrected and the Subaru overturned one time and came to rest on its right side. Both Cavallaro and her passenger were wearing safety belts; minor injuries were reported to the CHP. Another rollover, June 19 At 5:25 p.m., Peter Thao, 18, of Oroville, was driving a 2002 Toyota Celica GT west- bound on Highway 70, east of Rodgers Flat, at 50 mph. Thao related to the CHP that a deer ran in front of the Celica. Thao, in an attempt to avoid the deer, unsafely steered the vehicle to the right, at which time it left the roadway and entered a gravel shoulder to the north. Thao attempted to steer the vehicle back to the left, but lost control as it began fishtailing to the left in the gravel. He again attempted to counter-steer back to the right, but again was unable to gain control as it fishtailed back to the right. Finally, the Celica left the roadway, struck the rock embankment to the north and rolled over. It landed on its tires upright facing south. Thao and his two passen- gers were wearing their seat belts. There were no injuries observed or claimed by any involved parties. Deer collision, June 21 At 9:20 a.m., an unnamed male, 27, of Sparks, was driving a 2004 GMC west- bound on Highway 70 just west of Mitchell Lane at 50 mph.

This was reported as a fatal accident.

CHP offers tips for safe summer motoring For many, summertime is vacation time. During the summer months, not only does the temperature begin to climb, vehicle travel in- creases as well. "We want you to have a safe and healthy summer, and enjoy the California sunshine on your next road trip," said California Highway Patrol (CHP) Commissioner Joe Farrow. "Safety should never take a back seat; buckle up, designate a non-drinking driver, adhere to the speed limit and follow a few simple suggestions." Due [o the high tempera- tures during the summer months, before traveling, have your vehicle thoroughly checked, with special attention given to these items: Cooling system Examine all belts and hoses for cracks or leaks, replacing any you may have doubts about. Don't forget tools and water to accomplish a change if necessary. Don't overlook the radiator, which should be properly filled with coolant. While driving, keep a close eye on the temperature gauge, shutting off the air conditioner if the engine heat creeps thigh. ., Tires Make sure all of the vehicle's tires have plenty of tread and are properly inflated. Don't forget about the spare and make sure the jack and tire changing tools are in good condition. Extreme heat can take its toll, not only on worn or old tires, but new ones as well. Electrical system Check all lighting equip- ment, making sure itAs in good operating condition. Take a close look at the battery. Ensure the cables are tight and appropriate fluids are filled to the proper level. Don't forget your wind- shield wipers in case you get caught in a sudden storm. Some additional rules to follow before heading off on your summer road trip in the heat: Always let someone know where you're going and when you expect to return. Carry a survival kit with extra water, concentrated food, cellphone and charger, sunscreen, matches, collapsi- ble shovel, blankets, good jack, tools and basic extra parts for your car (e.g. hoses, fan belts, extra gas) and maps of your area. - Never leave children, frail elderly or pets in the vehicle unattended, even if you think you'll only be a minute. Summer heat can quickly create deadly condi- tions inside a vehicle. "We just want to remind everyone that as a driver, you are responsible for the safety of your passengers ,wh,H6 t,he ehicle is running and Wheff it is" parked, '' said Farrow. -' Last year in California, between June 1 and Aug. 31, there were 783 people killed and more than 58,000 people injured in collisions. "We want everyone to enjoy the summer, but at the same time, please be very careful when driving," added Farrow. ..........  PORTABLE I ......... OXYGEN {:]i.::.
