A fast series of events west of Redding Wednesday night left one person dead. Just after 8 O’clock a Shasta County Sheriff’s Deputy was driving westbound on Highway 299 west of Lower Springs Road and ran head-on into an eastbound Toyota sedan with three occupants. The deputy was transported to Mercy Hospital with undisclosed injuries. The woman driving the Toyota was hospitalized with moderate injuries. A juvenile in the Toyota suffered major injuries and another unidentified passenger was killed.
