Humboldt County Sheriff Deputy Finds Vehicle With Driver 75 feet Off Hwy 101
A Humboldt County Sheriff deputy patrolling on Hwy 101 southbound by the Palmer Creek Road exit in Fortuna around 12:30 a.m. saw what appeared to be tracks of a vehicle going off the highway into the bushes. On further investigation, he spotted a vehicle about 75 feet into the brush.
The deputy hiked to the vehicle and found the driver in the vehicle. Fire and ambulance responded from the Fortuna area. The driver complained of loss of consciousness; neck and lower back pain. The driver was transported to local hospital.
Please, folks, be careful driving today; it is slippery on the roads.
