A major injury accident occurred at approximately 4 a.m. two miles south of the Klamath Bridge when a full sized Dodge pickup went off the road and caught on fire. We don’t have the full details yet. However, according to the California Highway Patrol Incident page hosted on the Lost Coast Outpost, a woman was found lying in the road at mile marker 1.59 north of the Humboldt/Del Norte County line.
For a short time around 6:10 this morning the northbound lanes were blocked while the burned wreck was removed from where it had come to rest.
CHP listed this as a major injury accident.
