Scanner traffic beginning at 2:36 p.m. indicated a singular vehicle slipped off of State Route 128 near Boonville and descended an embankment.

When first responders arrived at the scene, at least one of two occupants was unconscious and both required extrication and medical care.

The Incident Commander reported “major rollover damage” to the vehicle.

Fire and medical personnel were initially having trouble finding the specific location of the incident and finally found the crash site after being flagged down by someone on the scene.

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.
