Last night at approximately 10 p.m., a pickup rolled over north of Rio Dell on Hwy 101 in the southbound lanes. Though the initial report over the scanner said the occupant had major injuries, the CHP later changed that to minor injuries. 

Both southbound lanes were blocked and traffic backed up to the Van Duzen Bridge. By approximately 11 p.m. one lane was open and by 11:45 p.m. both lanes were open.
