Stacy Brewer Hurt in Fiery Accident on Highway 36 near Highway 89
MILL CREEK, CA (July 27, 2022) — A 55-year-old man identified as Stacy Brewer of Los Molinas was hurt in a fiery crash on Friday, July 22.
According to reports, on Friday afternoon, Brewer drove his blue 2020 Dodge 3500 down the highway west of the Lassen National Park entrance on Highway 36. Then he quickly approached another car directly in front of him.
CHP said that Brewer traveled too fast and his breaks locked up. This forced his vehicle to spin and leave the highway until it hit a tree. After that, the Dodge continued rotating. It rolled over and crashed into another large tree where it came to a stop on its side.
The Dodge then quickly began to smoke and catch fire. Thankfully, other travelers stopped to give assistance. They broke the front windshield out and helped Brewer out of the Dodge.
The Dodge shortly thereafter became engulfed in flames. Fire crews from Lassen National Forest Service, Cal-Fire, and Mineral Fire rushed to the scene. They contained and put out the fire.
Brewer suffered minor injuries in the crash.
Authorities determined alcohol is not a factor in this incident.
