Hay Truck crashes killing driver

A tragic acci­dent has left the dri­ver of semi truck dead. It hap­pened Wednes­day after­noon on High­way 162 West of Cov­elo. Cal­i­for­nia High­way Patrol reports says, A trac­tor trailer haul­ing hay entered into a
left hand turn in the road­way, plunged off the high­way and over­turned down an embank­ment. The dri­ver, 60 year old John Amann was pro­nounced dead at the scene.
Lit­tle Lake Fire Depart­ment responded to the acci­dent at the request of Cov­elo Fire Depart­ment. The Lit­tle Lake heavy res­cue engine with five fire­fight­ers and the jaws of life were used to extri­cate the vic­tim, after a tow truck arrived at the scene to sta­bi­lize the hay truck. Pre­lim­i­nary police reports indi­cate Amann was not wear­ing a seat belt and that drugs or alco­hol are not believed to be a factor.
