On 7-1-2023 at about 06:00 PM, Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Deputies were dispatched to the 4300 block of Young Creek Road in Ukiah, California regarding a coroner’s case. Upon arrival, Deputies learned the decedent had been involved in an ATV accident, while traveling on a narrow trail. The Deputies contacted a California Highway Patrol Officer who was at the scene conducting an investigation into the accident.

Sheriff’s Office Deputies learned the ATV began to tip over, when the decedent jumped out and attempted to stop the ATV from tipping. The ATV fell on the decedent and family members were able to pull the decedent out and transported her to the Ambulance. The Ambulance transported the decedent, but the decedent passed away while being transported.

The case is currently under investigation by CHP and MCSO, and additional information will be released as it becomes available.

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.
