One killed, Three hurt
ROUND MOUNTAIN — A Powell Butte, Oregon man was killed in a
crash involving two semi-trucks at approximately 12:30 a.m.
Friday on Highway 299 near Oak Run Road. The crash shut the
highway down for roughly nine hours, going from that to one lane
for much of the afternoon.
The Highway Patrol says that Daniel Maciejewski of Garden City,
Idaho was eastbound on Highway 299 west of Plummer Street at an
“unknown high rate of speed for the roadway.” Clarence Avila,

discarded building materials and asbestos to come off his
flatbed trailer and into the westbound lane directly in front of
Avila’s truck. Avila collided headon into the container

dislodged into the eastbound lane. Maciewjewski’s truck

Maciejewski’s passenger Thomas O’Berry, 44, of Star Idaho and

Neither alcohol or drugs is suspected to be a factor in the
crash, but the incident is still under investigation. The
Coroner’s office has released Avila’s name after notifying his

Mayers Cares for Evacuees
OLD STATION - The California Department of Transportation is in
the process of planning to straighten out curves on the portion
of Highways 89/44 south of Old Station and residents of both Hat
Creek and Old Station, which rely heavily on the flow of Hat
Creek are up in arms.
Caltrans has asked the Hat Creek Ranger District of the USFS for
permits to bore three hoizontal and one verticle borehole in the
fragile lava flow base which serves as the floor along much of
the creek, including the Big Springs tributary and area.
Ranchers, farmers and a number of residents depend on water
rights along the creek to provide them with their water supply.
Additionally, the Hat Creek is a trophy trout stream as well as
popular camping area.
Caltrans cites eight traffic accidents and one deer strike in
five years - due to unsafe speed and icy conditions as
justification for the work.

facilities in the Redding area ready and willing to help,”
Incident Public Affairs Officer Valerie Lakey said. “We were
able to transfer our patients and be confident that they were
receiving quality care. The care,compassion and willingness to
help from these facilities did not go unnoticed.” On September
15 we were able to return the gesture.”
Mayers took six patients without question. Those patients were
still at Mayers Monday, doing well and receiving visits from
their family, Lakey says.
Lakey says the hospital’s dietary staff stayed over and made
sure the new patients would have a meal when they arrived.
Housekeeping laundered their clothes assuring they’d have fresh
clothing in the morning when they woke up. Admitting staff came
in, administration was there or other needs. The Clinical Staff
prepared to make the transition for these patients comfortable.
“We were blessed to meet and care for these patients. There was
