Scanner traffic indicates that at approximately 6:00 p.m. a single vehicle overturned on Highway 101 just south of the intersection with Highway 1. 

The accident has resulted in the emergency responders initiating one-way traffic as they work to clear the roadway. 

Initial requests to dispatch for an air ambulance to the scene have been declined due to weather.

The Caltrans Quickmap shows traffic significantly slowed in the area.  

An image sent to us by a reader shows the vehicle overturned in the southbound lane completely blocking it and intruding into the southbound lane as well.

UPDATE 7:22 p.m.: Scanner traffic indicates multiple resources are being released from the scene of the accident and the Incident Commander reported the roadway has reopened.

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 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.
