Tehama County Fatal Speeding Accident

I’m Ed Smith, a Redding Auto Accident Attorney. A man from Tehama County passed away on the night of Friday, August 12, 2016 due to a speeding accident.

What Happened?

According to authorities from the California Highway Patrol, the 44 year old man identified in the crash was Michael Katauskas. Katauskas was behind the wheel of his 2005 Nissan 350Z driving in the eastbound direction of Rancho Tehama Road. Katauskas lost control of his coupe vehicle when he approached the east side of Alpine Road. The vehicle drove off the roadway which ended up rolling down an embankment.

Fatal Speeding Accident Aftermath

As a result of the accident, the front end of the vehicle sustained damage from coming into contact with an oak tree. The vehicle then overturned which later landed upside down in an occupied resident’s driveway. Residents in the area came to the scene of the crash and attempted to assist Katauskas. Emergency medical personnel came to treat Katauskas but he was pronounced deceased at the scene. Authorities also stated that Katauskas was the only occupant in the vehicle during the accident and he was not wearing a seat belt at the time.
