Scanner traffic beginning around 1:09 p.m. indicates that a logging truck has driven over the side of Highway 101 between Hargus Road and Spyrock Road in northern Mendocino County.

A California Highway Patrol Officer at the scene is reporting that the driver is out of the vehicle and the northbound lane is blocked.

Caltrans has been requested to the scene to extricate logs that are blocking the roadway.

UPDATE 1:45 p.m.: Caltrans has successfully removed the logs from the roadway using their end-loader.

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 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.
