[UPDATE] Car Crashed Into Garberville Motel
A car crashed into the Humboldt Redwood Inn on the south end of Garberville at approximately 2:36 pm. The Toyota Sequoia smashed through a window and a door before coming to rest.
UPDATE from the CHP:
On 11/21/2016 at approximately 1430 hours, a 2002 Toyota Sequoia, driven by See Yee Xiong [age 63 of Fresno] was traveling northbound on US-101 south of Garberville, CA. While exiting the freeway, Xiong failed to negotiate the off-ramp and allowed the Toyota to run off the east roadway edge, travel through a group of bushes and collide with the Humboldt Redwood Inn, 987 Redwood Dr. Garberville, CA 95542. The Toyota came to rest against the Office and Room #3 of the Inn. The driver was momentarily trapped in the Toyota but eventually he was able to exit the Toyota of his own free will.
As a result of this collision, Xiong sustained minor injuries and was transported to Jerold Phelps Community Hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Alcohol and/or drugs do not appear to be a factor and this collision is currently under investigation by the Garberville CHP Office.
