A motorcyclist has tragically been killed this morning after colliding with a vehicle in Fort Bragg. The southbound lane of State Route 1 is impeded as first responders work to clear the roadway.

Scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information page indicate a vehicle collided with a motorcycle around 10:15 a.m. near the intersection of Cypress Street and State Route 1.

Moments after the collision, CPR was reportedly being conducted on the motorcyclist, and SR-1 was closed due to the roadway being impeded by the incident.

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.
