Briefs: Yuba-Sutter residents hurt in Highway 99 wreck in Butte
Two Yuba-Sutter residents were taken to the hospital after a three-vehicle crash on southbound Highway 99 south of the Skyway/Park Avenue in Chico at 12:23 p.m. Thursday.
Twenty-year-old Chayton Flowers of Yuba City was taken from his car on a stretcher, but his condition is unknown, the Chico Enterprise-Record reported.
Flowers, who was driving a Honda Del Sol, slammed his car into a Toyota Corolla at about 65 mph, said California Highway Patrol officer Saul Bernal.
Michael Simons, 35, of Marysville, was driving the Corolla, which sustained the most damage.
Simons, who walked out of his mangled car, was taken to the hospital as a precaution, Bernal said.
The third driver, Chico resident Larry Zinglar, 56, was uninjured.
Animal shelter changing hours
The Sutter County Animal Shelter is changing its hours of operation next week, closing on Monday and Wednesday evenings.
The change is due to a shortage of staff, county officials said in a statement.
The shelter's new hours are 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, with the office open from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. those days.
Both are closed on Sunday or Monday.
Staff shortages are creating safety concerns by "stretching existing employees too thin," the county statement said.
