GV crash victim dies: head trauma

A Grass Valley man died of injuries from a July car accident on Brunswick Road, officials reported Wednesday.

Perry Flynn, who never emerged from critical condition at Sutter Roseville Medical Center, was declared dead at the hospital just after 2 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Placer County Coroner’s Office.

Officially, the 45-year-old died from lack of oxygen to his brain, caused by head trauma, Placer County Sgt. John Addoms said.

But it was a “massive” heart attack on July 22 that first caused him to swerve off Brunswick Road before his southbound Ford Aspire came to rest against a tree south of Greenhorn Road, Officer George Kirbyson of the California Highway Patrol said.

Rescuers revived Flynn with CPR, and he was airlifted to Sutter Roseville after a brief stay at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital.
