    Another single vehicle accident?

  • Geeze there’s alot of accidents lately.i hope they will be ok,sending good thoughts.Please folks drive alert!!

  • Kym, your map has no marker.

    • That’s because there is contradictory information about where the incident occurred. But, I thought the map would help a reader get the general idea. It’s south of Leggett near the Empire Reststop (but….I don’t know exactly where)

  • Deer are the biggest cause of solo vehicle accidents in our area, especially on 101. Don’t swerve. Better to hit the deer than to lose control. Grip the wheel & brake. JMO

    • sharpen your pencil

      That sounds like the excuse a drunk would try and use on the cops. “I swear occifer, there were a dear there and I had to hit the tree to avoid it!”

    There was some kind of accident on Benbow hill about 2/3 of the way down (this morning?) Something went up the bank and wiped out a large green road sign. It totally freaked my dog out.

    • Nothing shows up as having been reported to CHP. Probably fled.

        They left a lot of car parts behind. I don’t know how they drove away, but they must have, because if it had been reported it would have been cleaned up. Thanks for the info.

      • Wondering who the driver was..There is no mention of what hospital they were flown to. So do you know how I can find out who the injured person was. Been hearing a lot of rumors. So i Was wanting some sort of verification before I jump to conclusions.

  • I went home to leggett from Laytonville at about 11:30 pm there was some deers out last night

  • Does anyone know who was injured in this accident? My good friend and neighbor is rumored to have died or been injured in this one, and they dont have any family I can ask about it. Help please?
