At approximately 7:46 a.m., scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page indicated a truck occupied by a woman and three children collided with a tree head-on.

The accident reportedly occurred a quarter-mile from the west end of Anderson Valley Way near Boonville.

Two ground ambulances and one air ambulance has been dispatched to the traffic accident after the Incident Commander reported that all four patients experienced minor injuries.

UPDATE 8:29 a.m.: The Incident Commander reported all patients have been transported from the scene of the traffic accident. The truck, a Chevrolet Silverado, reportedly experienced major front-end damage as a result of the collision and is currently 10′ feet off of the roadway.

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.
