Fatal Crash Discovered Yesterday Off Highway 299 Near Burnt Ranch

A body was found inside the wreckage of an unreported traffic accident discovered yesterday morning off Highway 299 south of Burnt Ranch.

The vehicle was reportedly believed to be abandoned until crews located the deceased man inside.

It’s unclear what day or time the traffic accident occurred.
