What was originally reported as a non-injury traffic collision on the northbound lanes of Broadway across from In and Out Burger around 2:45 p.m. on December 8, is now being reported as an injury collision with a possible fleeing driver.

The initial call reported that three vehicles had collided in northbound lanes with no injuries. However, as emergency personnel were responding to the scene, a caller reported that one of the drivers had fled on foot from the scene. The fleeing driver was described as a white female with black hair headed “down Broadway”.

According to the dispatcher, the reporting party was chasing the hit and run subject while on the phone with emergency personnel.

During that time, first responders on the scene requested an ambulance code 2 for female involved in the collision with chest pains.

Please remember that this story is unfolding. Information is being reported as we gather it. However, some of the information coming from witnesses and initial official reports could be wrong. We will do our best to get the facts but, in the case that something is inaccurate, we will update with correct information as soon as we can. 

Update 3:10 p.m.: The Caltrans QuickMap is showing that northbound traffic is heavily impacted with slow moving traffic from Bayshore Mall to Vigo Street on Broadway.

Scanner traffic indicates an officer is out with a female suspect. It is unclear at this time if this is the fleeing driver.

Tow trucks have been requested for the damaged vehicles.

Marci was jailed for 8 years, no? Did they let her out early. She killed her own child!

The driver chose to dutifully follow standard protocol for such situations in Humboldt County.

She did a “Hawley” or a “zoomie”. In this case, it suggests criminal behavior beyond hit-and-run. Speeding, texting, intoxication, other distracted driving, come to mind.

A close call in 1992 put an end to my drinking. 30+ years, and not even a drop. If you’re still drinking, please don’t get behind the wheel for any reason.

I was on West Hawthorne when she went past me on Broadway. She must have been doing 70mph.

I’m assuming she was driving, prior to the crash. If she was fleeing on foot after the crash…..that babe b movin’ out smartly!

It’s after 4:20 here…and I just read this and laughed.
I know it’s serious, but the idea of a crackhead running from an accident in Eureka just made me laugh.
Rather typical.

Does anybody still smoke crack up here? I figured there’s not enough actual cocaine in the mix anymore to make crack.
