First responders have amassed on the side of State Route 20 near Marina Drive after a traffic collision resulted in a black vehicle landing 100′ off the roadway and upturned on its roof.

The California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page indicates that a truck and black car collided around 12:28 p.m. which sent the black car down an embankment. First responders found a party trapped in the vehicle and successfully extricated them.

Medics packaged the patient who is now being transported to Ukiah Valley Medical Center to be airlifted for treatment.

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 if you know a story that needs to be told.
