Hit and Run Accident in Ukiah Leaves SUV Overturned and Unoccupied After Parties Fled

Scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information Page indicate a traffic collision on Ukiah’s Brush Street resulted in one vehicle on its roof, another fleeing the scene, and all involved parties taking off on foot.

When law enforcement arrived at the intersection of Brush Street and North Orchard Avenue, they found the overturned vehicle unoccupied corroborating a reporting party who said they watched multiple individuals flee the area on food.

Law enforcement is now searching for a dark-colored pickup truck that is suspected of being involved in the collision.

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.
