The California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page indicates a white pickup truck ran off Ukiah North State Street near the Kentuck Fried Chicken restaurant slowing traffic in the area.

The incident reportedly occurred at 7:13 p.m. and first responders on the scene are attempted to control traffic and extricate the pickup from the side of the roadway where it laid to rest. A tow truck has been expedited to the scene.

Information provided by a witness, though not reflected in the CHP Incident Log, is another vehicle was involved and there is a possibility of injuries resulting from the collision.

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 if you know a story that needs to be told.
