Three young people dead in Yuba County crash

Three people were killed in a roll-over accident Sunday in Yuba County.

The California Highway Patrol reported that a car being driven by Nicholas Hill, 29, of Redding was traveling southbound on Marysville Road near Dobbins about 2:15 a.m. Sunday when the vehicle was allowed to leave the roadway. The driver over-corrected, lost control and collided with a large tree.

The car then rolled several times across both lanes. Three occupants, including the driver, were ejected.

Hill, Lacey Newman, 20, of Dobbins, and Taylor Ellis, 21, of Santee, San Diego County, were killed, according to a CHP press release.

A fourth person in the car, Colton Sullivan, 23, remained restrained inside the vehicle and suffered moderate injuries.
