Update 4:27 p.m.: Battalion Chief Kent Hulbert of Humboldt Bay Fire tells us the roadway is clear.



  • We have the dumbest drivers. So sad!

    • Yes, it does seem like there is a lot of bad driving these days. Way back when I learned to drive, the adage was when the roads are bad, slow down, and leave more space between cars.

      • You can’t teach common sense…
        and you can’t fix stupid!

        • Went to town today…visited Costco and Winco,
          was fortunate enough to return home unscathed.
          I’m always reminded of the song ‘welcome to the jungle’
          when I visit Eureka, Costco, and Winco.
          Waiting to see the next post of a roll over…..

        • Right on!! That portion of Broadway is a cluster -uck always. Then add lousy rain and there goes the visibility welcoming a disaster. Eureka will always have the highest 101 highway accident stats for the Commie State of Sacramento

  • Cell phones are a lethal weapon causing more deaths and injury than any DUI statistics!

  • I drive 200 miles per day between Mickyville and Rio Dell. I see cell phones and tailgating at 75 mph in the rain. We do seem to have a fair number of ‘intellectually challenged’ drivers out there.
