[Photographs of this traffic incident were taken by Brandon Lawson]

At approximately 11:56 a.m. two vehicles collided in the southbound lane of Highway 101 near the Parducci Road Overcrossing.

Scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information Page indicate a gray Toyota Avalon collided with a PG&E truck, causing the Avalon to spin out.

By 11:57 the sedan had been moved to the center divider while personnel assessed the scene.

At 12:01 p.m., just five minutes after the initial collision, the roadway was clear and one vehicle was left in the center divider and a tow truck was dispatched to remove it.

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.
