Cleone Woman Being Medevaked After Kick By a Horse Causes Traumatic Injuries

Around 8:20 p.m., medical personnel was dispatched to Cleone’s Mill Creek Road after a woman was reportedly kicked by a horse causing traumatic injuries.

The dispatcher reported the patient was in a field behind the residence and EMTs used a six-wheeler to access the patient and haul her out to an awaiting ambulance.

An air ambulance will meet the ground ambulance at the Mendocino County Coast Hospital to transport the patient to an out-of-area hospital.

The reported location of the incident was the house across the street from the trailer park which is located on 32000 Mill Creek Road in Cleone.



  1. To whom it may concern. Yesterday I was not kicked by my horse Lovey. She was startled and came up off the ground quicker than usual and when I slid off of her and came onto my right leg my knee gave out, I fell backwards and hit my head on a cinderblock. The only contact she made was standing over me while I was out and when I woke one of her hoofs came in contact with my back when she went to step forward but she didn’t hurt me, it’s just a scrape. I’m not sure how long I was out but I managed to crawl over to my chair and find my cell phone. I tried to call Chris H then text/ recording for help. Turns out I got someone else in my H contacts and was sent out a crew who took my by helicopter to the trauma center in Santa Rosa. I begged not to go I was told I had to. At Memorial the gave me a full work up and cleared me of fractures then discharged me. I’m at my sisters place dizzy and achy but ok. Thank you to everyone who helped me.
