Grass Valley man injured in solo accident

A 66-year-old Grass Valley man was flown to a Roseville hospital after rolling his vehicle Friday morning on Dog Bar Road.

The man, identified by the California Highway Patrol as Douglas Newnan, was driving southbound on Dog Bar Road south of Wheeler Acres Road at approximately 11:30 a.m. when he drifted onto the right shoulder for unknown reasons.

Newnan reportedly over-corrected, crossing into the southbound and northbound lanes before rolling his vehicle into a ditch.

Nevada County Consolidated firefighters and Sierra Nevada Ambulance crew members carried the driver up the hill. Nevada County Sheriff’s deputies also assisted.

Newnan was flown to Sutter Roseville Medical Center and was listed in serious condition as of Friday night.
