The northbound lane of the Ridgewood Grade section of Highway 101 is slowed after a vehicle struck the center divider at approximately 3:51 this afternoon.

Scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page indicate a black Dodge truck struck the k-rail in the center divider spinning out and coming to rest in the fast lane.

The Caltrans Quickmap shows the northbound lane is significantly slowed in the area of the collision.

Emergency responders are on scene awaiting the arrival of a tow truck to clear the roadway.

UPDATE 4:37 p.m.: Scanner traffic indicates that the roadway is clear and traffic is flowing.

Please remember that this story is unfolding. Information is being reported as we gather it. However, some of the information coming from witnesses and initial official reports could be wrong. 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.
