Nevada County Undersheriff Henry Serrano says the Deputy involved in the crash on Sunday evening remains in the hospital in Roseville and it will be some time before the Deputy will return to duty.
“Deputy Solinas is doing very well. He’s making a good recovery and we anticipate that it will take some time for him to heal from his injuries, but we expect a full recovery.”
The Deputy was responding to a emergency call for assistance from another Deputy who was trying to take a man and woman into custody near Lake of the Pines. The Deputy lost control of his patrol car on Highway 49 near Quail creek Road, causing the car to roll several times and hit a tree.
