  • Seems like to me there have been more crashes on that stretch of road.since the new buy pass started being used .

    • This accident was not near Willits, about 45 minutes north of the bypass. The S curve near the bypass has had several accidents. (The bypass is still under construction.)

  • There’s one near Pepperwood right now too. Multiple vehicles! So sad.

  • I heard it was an elderly couple with an SUV pulling a trailer and mixed it with a semi truck. The elderly gentleman was taken to the hospital to be check on. (What is elderly? 60 if you’re 20, 80 if your 60.)

  • I passed this one while heading home from Ukiah, then not too long afterwards, was passed by the cops going to Pepperwood. Busy day on 101. Scary.
