Ford Explorer Flips On Its Side on Highway 101 Near Confusion Hill Slowing Traffic


Traffic is slowed just north of Bridges Creek on Hwy 101 between Piercy and Leggett in Mendocino County after a crash about 2:18 p.m.

Reportedly a Ford Explorer flipped over in the northbound lane, blocking traffic. The male occupant received minor injuries to his hand because of the crash.

Only one lane is blocked and a tow truck has been contacted to move the vehicle out the roadway.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. 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 if you know a story that needs to be told.
