Vehicle in Ditch Along State Route 20 West of Willits

[Video provided by a Mendocino County resident]

The notorious State Route 20 struck again this morning when a white sedan lost its footing in the morning roadway landing in a ditch alongside the westbound lane west of Willits proper.

A video sent to us by a reader around 9:37 a.m. shows a sedan front first and immobile in a roadside ditch with an emergency vehicle parked nearby.

The CHP Traffic Incident Information Page indicated there were no injuries, just inconveniences as the parties waited on the roadside for a tow truck to arrive.

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.
