An Arbuckle family is in mourning following a tragic accident that killed their 18-year-old son.

At approximately 11:23 a.m. on Friday, July 12th, 2013 Dylan Marshall Akins, was traveling in the Northbound Lane of Lonestar Road, just south of Ware Road when for unknown reasons his 2011 Dodge Pickup drifted off the roadway and into an empty irrigation ditch and collided with a dirt embankment; his vehicle then overturned and came to rest on its roof in an irrigation canal filled with approximately five feet of water.

Akins was extracted from the vehicle by emergency personnel and transported to Colusa Regional Medical Center where he was declared deceased.

Akins was a recent 2013 graduate from Inderkum High School in Natomas. He played varsity baseball for three years as a pitcher and first baseman, Akins was also a football team captain and a two-year, two-way starter on the defensive and offensive line.

Akins leaves behind six siblings, Kyle and Haleigh Shandinger, Caleb and Mason Akins, Samantha and Jacob Stoll and his father Jason Akins and step-mother Stacy Akins; mother Stephanie Stoll and step-father Gary Stoll.

The cause of the collision is still under investigation.

A candlelight vigil in memory of Akins was held on Sunday, July 14th at Inderkum High School in Natomas.

Akins was laid to rest on Friday, July 19, at the St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Woodland.

This is the third tragic automobile accident involving a teen within the last 10 months.
