At approximately 10:58 a.m., a vehicle went off Highway 20 approximately five miles east of Fort Bragg resulting in a fatality. Scanner traffic indicated an 11-44 (deceased individual)had occurred and the coroner was called to the scene.
According to a since deleted log from the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page, the vehicle went off the roadway near the Wildwood Campground and RV Park descending approximately 10 feet when it hit a tree that stopped it from descending further. The Incident Information page indicated first responders first noticed the driver was unconscious, then later, over the scanner, called the coroner to the scene.
