At 11:50 last night, the CHP learned of a crash that killed a 17-year-old youth near Covelo in Mendocino County. According to Sgt. Matt Harvey, the young male was “traveling eastbound on State Route 162 approaching the intersection at Biggar Lane.” He was alone in the vehicle.
Harvey said that as the red Ford F150 was approaching the intersection, the pickup veered to the right and collided into an iron fence and then into a wooden utility pole. “[The teenager] was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced deceased at the scene,” the sergeant told us.
At this point, Harvey explained, it is unknown if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
