FATAL TRAFFIC COLLISION, NEEDLES - On Thursday at 4:25 p.m., Schlane Flynn, 58, of Lemon Grove, Calif., was driving a 2003 Ford pickup northbound on Highway 95, south of milepost marker 52 (south of Five Mile Road.) For unknown reasons, she let her vehicle drift to the right, run off of the east road edge and onto the soft dirt shoulder. Flynn overcorrected to the left and lost control of the vehicle, veering across both lanes of the highway in a northwesterly direction and colliding head-on with a dirt embankment. The impact caused the vehicle to roll over onto its roof, trapping Flynn inside. She was wearing a shoulder and lap style seat belt. She was removed from the vehicle and shortly thereafter stopped breathing. Flynn was transported from the scene to the Colorado River Medical Center in Needles, where she was pronounced dead.
