SUTTER COUNTY, Calif. – A 55-year-old Berry Creek man died and an Oroville woman was injured in a collision on Highway 99 early Monday morning at Riego Road, according to a report by Action News Now.

Roxanne Spiekerman, 37, of Oroville, was traveling in those northbound lanes when the Chevrolet was coming at her and struck the right side of her 2015 Volkswagen. The impact caused both vehicles to veer onto the dirt shoulder of the highway. The man driving the Chevrolet died at the scene.
