Law enforcement, fire, air, and ground medic were dispatched to State Route 162 northeast of Covelo after a vehicle rolled into a ditch reportedly entrapping a patient. The driver and solo occupant of the vehicle reportedly extricated herself and fled the scene in a separate vehicle.

The driver was then taken to the Covelo Firehouse where she is reportedly showing injuries all over her body. A Code 3 ground ambulance is being requested, meaning with lights and sirens.

The initial incident occurred around 8:03 p.m. involving a grey Toyota sedan driven by a female. When the Incident Commander arrived near the intersection of SR 162 and Logan Lane, the vehicle was abandoned and medical resources were canceled.

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.
