Scanner traffic and the California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information Page indicate the collision occurred approximately halfway between Lucerne and Pepperwood Grove.

The collision reportedly occurred at 7:08 p.m. when the motorcycle and a tractor-trailer hauling a backhoe collided head-on cluttering the roadway with debris. The rider reportedly ended up under the utility truck and was pronounced dead minutes after the collision.

The Caltrans Quickmap indicates that traffic is moving slowly in both directions as first responders secure 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.
