Major Injury Accident Closed Hwy 101 This Afternoon
An accident south of Willits closed Hwy 101 around noon today. A black Jeep Liberty overturned causing major injuries to at least one occupant. All four lanes were closed and traffic began backing up for miles. It was quarter after one before traffic began moving in both lanes.
Because the investigation is still in the preliminary stages, we don’t have all the details but it appears at least one other vehicle also was involved. We don’t know whether the second vehicle was involved at the time of the accident or later in the traffic jam that resulted.
