    Vehicle description?

  • LeAnna Carson-Hansen

    May she get excellent medical care. Thank you EMS/LEO’s who took the call to assist her.

  • My boyfriend and I were the first ones to find her. We called 911. It was 8:33pm. I think the van was a GMC. It was a larger type of van. She was in bad shape. Was being loaded into the helicopter around 10pm. I pray she will be okay.

  • My husband drives that dangerous road everyday.so bad.as a matter of fact,our truck just blew up and AAA,just sent tow truck like NOW,because of the dangerous road,so watch for tow truck just before dinesmore.hes off the road but heads up.

  • Some day I hope people around this county realize thei “Highway” no wider than a city street & loaded with DANGEROUS curves, is F’ing Extremely DANGEROUS!!!! Hopefully before someone else gets KILLED!!!! Bad enough all the major injury accidents of late but fatalities on this road are NOT like a video game you don’t automattcally refresh with another life!!! Here when you’re DEAD you’rew gone period!!! End of rant!!! Sorry I just get tired of reading of wreck after wreck especially the Major injury ones!!! :-C

  • It is upsetting to see so many crashes out on 36 (and 96), but the highway isn’t the problem. The universal speed law says go no faster than is safe for conditions. Remember, your body is soft and easily injured. Just because we have vehicles that can go fast doesn’t mean we should go fast. I’m sending agnostic prayers for this lady and the person injured yesterday on 96.

  • I sure hope she going to be ok.oh and for the folks who stopped for my husband this morning,thank u from the bottom of my heart.we have a silver ram pick-up with racks on top.the joint calmed him down waiting for AAA.such awsome people in humboldt,except the CHP who didn’t stop to see if he needed help,not nice.on 36 this morning
