Traffic Collision on Ridgewood Grade Impedes Southbound Lane of Highway 101

[Video sent to us by a Mendocino County resident]

A traffic accident on the Ridgewood Grade portion of Highway 101 south of Willits blocked one lane as emergency personnel clean-up the scene.

Originally reported as a two vehicle collision at 11:38 a.m., emergency personnel arrived on scene located a truck blocking the fast lane and the two occupants out of the vehicle with no injuries.

Footage sent to us by a passing motorist did not portray the second vehicle involved, so the exact circumstances of the collision remain unclear.

Tow trucks have been dispatched to the scene and as of 12:28 p.m. emergency personnel were still working to secure the scene and clear the roadway.

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 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.
