Coroner ID’s Montgomery Creek Woman Killed In Head-On Crash On Highway 299

A woman who died early Saturday morning when her small car smashed head-on into a big rig near Fall River Mills has been identified by the Shasta County Coroners Office as 25-year-old Maria Little White Swan Riggins of Montgomery Creek. The CHP says her 2008 Chevy Cobalt was westbound on Highway 299 near Pit One Powerhouse coming down the hill when she crossed over the center line into the path of a Peterbilt tractor-trailer driven by Jose Ramirez of Corning. Riggins was not wearing a seatbelt and she suffered fatal injuries. The CHP had said alcohol was not believed to have been a factor in the crash.
