The California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information Page indicates that around 3:51 p.m. reports began to emerge of a motorcycle crashing into the side of a tour bus on Highway 101 near the intersection with Reynolds Highway. First responders determined that the motorcyclist was run over by the tour bus requiring an air ambulance due to resulting major injuries.
The CHP Incident page describes the tour bus as having no passengers. Traffic in the area was significantly affected for approximately one hour after first responders slowed down traffic in the area of the collision.
The information provided in this article is based on preliminary information gathered from scanner traffic and the CHP Incident page. We will follow up with CHP Garberville on Monday to understand the totality of the circumstances.
