Scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page indicate a single vehicle went off Old River Road near the Hopland Cemetary around 7:20 this evening coming to rest after colliding with a tree in a ditch.

Initial information described the vehicle as not being visible from the roadway.

Upon arrival, the Incident Commander reported the vehicle was 15-20′ down a roadside ditch and both the patients had self-extricated.

One of the patients had what was described as ‘minor injuries and as of 7:47 p.m., they were still assessing the other patient. A ground ambulance is going to be transporting one of the parties to a local hospital.

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 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.
