31-Year-Old Fort Bragg Resident Succumbs to Injuries After Colliding with Tree Near Cleone


The following is a press release issued by the California Highway Patrol:

On 07/01/21, at approximately 2338 hours, Ukiah CHP responded to a solo vehicle collision, located on SR-1 north of Nameless Lane. During the investigation it was determined, Party-1 was driving a White 2017 Honda Accord northbound on SR-1, at approximately 100 MPH. Due to Party-1’s high rate of speed, Party-1 allowed the Honda Accord to cross the east solid white line of SR-1, and onto the dirt/grass shoulder of SR-1. As a result, the front of the Honda Accord collided with a tree. Party-1 sustained fatal injuries. Party-1 was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision. At this time, it is unknown if alcohol and/or drugs are a factor in this collision. The cause of this collision is still under investigation. 

The identity of the involved party is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

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.
