An accident around 5 p.m. today shoved a red sedan into the Eureka Slough. According to the Lost Coast Outpost, the sedan and another vehicle were headed northbound on Hwy 101 when the other vehicle struck the sedan sending it into the water. A female occupant of the sedan was taken to the hospital.

Northbound traffic backed up for quite a distance after the accident.



  • Idiots. Every day! Really? Not one fucking day without an accident? Get off the dope you idiots, stop playing with the phone, its not that hard to drive down a straight stretch of fucking road.

    • [edit] Yes there are accidents every day, there are over 20 million registered vehicles in this state. Those are the odds. It’s not that fucking hard to google search risk of car accidents.

      • Moron we arent talking about the entire state are we , Gtfo, better yet where are you, I’m coming to pluck a chicken with you

    Ronald Reagan For President!

    Is she OK and out of the hospital?

    Cool drone pics of the scene.

    • Figures a useful pawn like you would want somebody who slept through their term as President. The useful pawn idiots still revere the Alzheimer’s President Reagan even though his “trickle down” economics made everyone worse off except the rich. But all you are is that useful pawn for the rich, that’s for sure.

    Reagan was a great puppet president. I just said no, Nancy, honest!

    You people should be more respectful! You must not be “from here” so “just leave”.

    Thanks so much!

  • It looks like because this person was obeying the speed limit her reward is to get run off the road into a ditch full of water and almost killed by an aggressive driver who could care less for another human life.
