He attempted to back his tractor and trailer southbound on Old Cromberg Road. In doing so, three separate collisions occurred. The first involved the trailer and a power line. The trailer struck a power line leading to the Creekside Cabin, which ripped the power line support beam on the cabin off and then impacted with a large pine tree. The tree was in front of the cabin with a dual light security light mounted on the pine. The security light was destroyed. The trailer became stuck on the tree.

Several other vehicles behind also began to pass by the big rig, which was accelerating very slowly on the hill. Blevins saw that a cone pattern was closing off the eastbound lane that vehicles were using to pass the big rig. He did not think he was supposed to pass in a construction zone. The Dodge driver slowed down to allow the big rig to pull further ahead of him. Graham thought that she was going to follow the Dodge around the big rig. She continued to speed up. When she saw that the cone pattern had cut off the eastbound lane and that the Dodge was slowing down behind the big rig, Graham attempted to apply her brakes and slow down, but was unable to stop in time. The front of The Hyundai struck the rear of the Dodge. After the collision, both vehicles were driven through the cone pattern and into the closed eastbound lane.

Rollover, Oct. 27 This accident occurred on Blackhawk Road at about 10:20 p.m. Brandon Casper, 31, of Quincy, was driving his black 2002 Honda Civic northbound on Blackhawk Road, south of Highway 70, at a stated speed of 45 to 50 mph. Casper is new to the Quincy area and was exploring the back roads. As he was coming down the hill, a deer ran across the road in front of the Civic. Casper swerved to the right in an attempt to avoid the deer. The vehicle veered off of the east side of the roadway and over a very steep embankment that leads to Blackhawk Creek. The Honda struck two very large Douglas fir trees and then rolled over. During the rollover sequence, the Civic hit another large Douglas fir tree and a cedar tree. The car came to rest on its top, facing south, still in contact with the two trees. Casper was able to climb out of the vehicle. He then climbed up the embankment and ran along Blackhawk Road until he got cell phone service at Highway 70. The driver called his cousin, who he was staying with in Quincy. His cousin drove out to the scene and picked Casper up. They went back to the cousin's house. Neither Casper nor his cousin thought about calling law enforcement to advise them of the accident. At about 9:26 a.m. the next morning, a USFS employee came upon the collision scene and other emergency agencies were contacted to respond. Casper had been wearing his seat belt during the incident and was unharmed.
