Firefighters, medics, and rescue personnel are navigating the rural roadways of the Mendocino National Forest this evening after a single vehicle rolled down an embankment causing injuries.

As per a Fish and Game Officer at the scene, the driver and passenger are up and walking, one suffering a back injury and the other suffering lacerations to the face.

Scanner traffic began around 7:47 p.m. reporting the accident in the area of the Hull Mountain Lookout, a popular destination for off-road enthusiasts.

Initial reports indicated the vehicle rolled down an embankment resulting in a possible fatality. Thankfully, as per information from the scene, only injuries resulted from the accident.

As of 8:27 p.m., both a standard air ambulance and a hoist-capable air ambulance have been requested to land at 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.
