A Reno woman died and a Susanville man was severely injured in two separate accidents on Highway 89 over the past week. Ice was not a factor in either of the accidents, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Sarah Woodham, 37, died Monday when the 1997 Chevy  Blazer she was driving southbound went off the highway near Dead Horse Canyon Road, according to a CHP press release. The Blazer overturned several times and struck a large pine tree approximately 50 feet from west roadway edge.

Woodham was wearing her seat belt, but due to the nature of the collision, she was partially ejected and sustained fatal injuries, according to the release. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

David Crockett Silkwood, 79, was also driving southbound when his 2001 Chevy 2500 pickup went off the road Thursday afternoon near Bartle, according to CHP officer Bill Lynam.

Silkwood suffered severe injuries when his pickup collided with several trees off the east side of the roadway, Lynam said.

Silkwood was transported via ambulance to Mercy Medical Center Mt. Shasta, then flown to Redding.

Both Silkwood and Woodham had no passengers in their vehicles at the time of the accidents. The pavement was noted as dry and the weather was clear when both the accidents occurred, according to the CHP.

Investigations into the accidents are still ongoing.
