In an unrelated accident, a 63-year-old California man was injured in an early morning accident on Tuesday just south of the Topaz Lake agricultural inspection station.
Daniel Altshuler, 63, of Encino, was found standing next to his 2011 Nissan Altima after rescuers responded to the 1:50 a.m. call.
Altshuler was southbound on Highway 395 when he ran into a guardrail on the west side of the highway, according to the California Highway Patrol.
He couldn’t tell officers what happened, and there were no witnesses. He was transported by Mono County’s Medic One to Holbrook Junction, where he was flown to Renown Regional Medical Center where he was treated for major injuries. This collision remains under investigation. In addition to the highway patrol and Mono County Paramedic Fire-Rescue, the Antelope Valley Fire Department responded to the accident.
