A motorcyclist was injured this evening after being struck by a vehicle in Ukiah prompting an air ambulance.

Scanner traffic began around 6:13 p.m. when dispatch requested law enforcement respond to the intersection of South State Street and Church Street after reports emerged a vehicle struck a motorcyclist.

The Incident Commander at the scene reported the rider had mild to moderate injuries associated with an “open compound fracture” in a lower extremity. The patient will be transported to Adventist Health Ukiah Valley and then life-flighted out of the area.

There was mention of the vehicle that struck the motorcycle fleeing the scene, but that has not been confirmed.

  1. I have so many assaults from motor vehicles vs bicycles in Ukiah yet police refuse to support bicycle rights.

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.
