Man Injured in Traffic Collision Last Night Shows Up in Stafford Bleeding
A spokesperson for the Garberville California Highway Patrol told us that the injured man sought by them walked into Stafford today with “pretty critical injuries.” This morning we told you that the CHP was using cell phone towers to attempt to locate a man missing since yesterday evening when he had a traffic accident. The man was able to call his girlfriend and tell her he was somewhere in a creek bed near Miranda. Unable to locate the man last night, the plan was to send aircraft up this morning to find the traffic collision.
However, at 7:34 a.m. the man and his dog were found walking on the roadside. The man was bleeding from his head. He was taken to Redwood Memorial Hospital. The CHP spokesperson said that an officer interviewed the man but the man could not recall where the accident occurred.
The man reported he had been driving an 87 tan Toyota pickup somewhere between Miranda and Pepperwood when he had the accident.
The CHP spokesperson said that a helicopter had flown the area looking for the vehicle but hadn’t located it.
