Three arrested following solo traffic collision

LAKE COUNTY – A solo traffic collision Monday resulted in the arrests of three men.

Nikke John Buschman, 33, of Oroville; 29-year-old Joseph Charles Pounds of Tehachapi; and Sean Joel Marks, 35, of Petaluma were taken into custody following the crash, which occurred at 8:35 p.m. Monday on Highway 29, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Adam Garcia.

Garcia said Buschman was driving his 1999 VW Jetta on Highway 29 just south of Spruce Grove Road

North when he lost control of the car while attempting to negotiate a left curve, causing the vehicle to roll over.

Pounds, who was reportedly traveling with Buschman, was following him in a 2001 Kia SUV. After the

collision Pounds pulled over to assist Buschman and was later determined to have been driving while under the influence of alcohol.

Garcia said both men were arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. Booking records show the men also were charged with misdemeanor counts of driving on suspended or revoked driver's licenses.

Buschman and Pounds were alleged to have been driving dangerously prior to the incident, Garcia said.

The third arrest came when officers encountered Marks, who was walking near the roadway at the time of the collision. Marks, who also had been drinking alcohol, was arrested for a parole violation, Garcia said.

On Tuesday, all three of the men were released from jail on bail, according to booking records.

Officer Steve Tanguay is investigating the collision, Garcia said.
