Vehicle Plunges into Navarro River After Veering Off State Route 128


Scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page indicate a single vehicle has gone off a portion of State Route 128 and landed into the Navarro River.

Initially, around 6:26 p.m. it was reported a vehicle had gone into a ditch, but a CHP officer on the scene confirmed it was in fact in the river. Reports emerged from the incident that a male was in or near the roadway.

Information as to how first responders will attempt to extricate the vehicle is unclear at this point.

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.
