[Update: Fatality] Big Rig Collides with Motorcycle on Highway 20 in Lake County; CPR in Progress and Traffic Backed Up


Scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page indicate at approximately 12:50 p.m. a big rig struck a motorcyclist on Highway 20 between Lucerne and Glenhaven in Lake County. A first responder told the dispatcher CPR is in progress and an air ambulance has been requested to the scene.

The dispatcher was told that the eastbound land is blocked and traffic is backing up according to Google Maps.

The motorcycle “appears to have been hit by a vehicle” and the motorcycle rider was reportedly “under the bike.” At one point in the scanner traffic, the motorcycle rider was referred to as “possible 11-44,” meaning possibly deceased.

UPDATE 2:08 p.m. Both scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic incident information page have revealed that the motorcyclist succumbed to their injuries.

Please remember that this story is unfolding. Information is being reported as we gather it. However, some of the information coming from witnesses and initial official reports could be wrong. We will do our best to get the facts but, in the case that something is inaccurate, we will update with correct information as soon as we can.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
