Two vehicles collided head-on this evening north of Laytonville resulting in one vehicle veering into a creek adjacent to Highway 101 and the other hitting a house near the roadside.

Scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information Page indicate initial reports came in around 9:48 p.m.

The reporting party told dispatch a female occupant of a Hyundai Santa Fe appeared injured after the vehicle struck the porch of a roadside home that was reportedly unoccupied at the time of the collision.

As first responders are nearing the scene, more information was provided that indicated the other vehicle involved in the collision came to rest in a creek along the highway.

The Incident Commander described one vehicle’s occupants as “walking wounded”. The vehicle that hit the house has an occupant with a minor injury.

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.
