Marysville Appeal-Democrat - - LOCAL - By Joshua Gu­tier­rez jgutier­[email protected]­pealdemo­crat.com

The Marysville man who died in a sin­gle-ve­hi­cle crash Sun­day was haul­ing ce­ment to the Oroville Dam site.

The Butte County Sher­iff’s Of­fice iden­ti­fied Peter Anderson, 51, of Marysville as the driver.

At 7:18 a.m. deputies with the sher­iff’s of­fice re­sponded to the sin­gle-ve­hi­cle crash on High­way 70 north of Power House Hill Road. The ve­hi­cle was a ce­ment truck owned by Mathew’s Readymix, a Ready Mix con­crete sup­plier based in Yuba City.

Ac­cord­ing to a spokesman for the Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol’s Oroville of­fice, the ve­hi­cle was head­ing north at 55 mph when it ex­pe­ri­enced rapid tire de­fla­tion. The truck pro­ceeded to veer right, but be­cause of the size of its load, flipped on its left side. The con­crete­car­ry­ing drum sep­a­rated from the ve­hi­cle as the truck con­tin­ued to ro­tate un­til it came to rest on its roof.

The sher­iff’s of­fice pro­nounced Anderson dead on ar­rival.

Safety con­straints were used prop­erly and no drugs or al­co­hol were sus­pected, said the CHP spokesman.

(An ear­lier re­port was that the ac­ci­dent hap­pened at the dam site; it was con­firmed that Anderson was en route to the site.) Marysville of­fice, 1530 El­lis Lake Drive Busi­ness hours: Mon­day-Fri­day, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
