According to a police report, a 15-year-old girl from Modoc County was driving a white 2003 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck eastbound on Highway 299 at a high rate of speed,

passing multiple vehicles.

Easley was driving a white 2015 Chevrolet 3500 pickup truck westbound on the highway when he collided head-on with the teen’s pickup while the girl attempted to pass a white 2015 three-axle semi-truck.

Authorities said the collision happened on Tuesday morning at around 9:05 a.m. August 10.

Following the impact of the crash, the Chevy 1500 went airbone and hit the left rear of the semi-truck.

Both pickups came to a rest on the westbound lane while the semi stopped on the right shoulder.

The teenager was killed in the crash. Her name was not disclosed.

Easley was treated for minor injuries while the semi-truck driver was unhurt.

It wasn’t immediately determined if alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.
