Just after 3 p.m. on Monday, December 18, emergency personnel were dispatched out on a rainy day in the northern reaches of Mendocino County for a collision on Highway 101 north of Leggett.

The initial report stated that a vehicle lost control and possibly slid down a hill.

Subsequent information given to emergency dispatch stated two semi trucks were on scene. A semi is reported to be blocking the southbound lane of traffic on Highway 101. Reports from the scene indicate one of the semi trucks was involved in the collision though that is unconfirmed at this time.

Traffic is backed up in the southbound lane north of the accident site. Please avoid the area if possible.

A tow truck has been requested for a Kia Sedona minivan approximately 10 feet off the roadway.

At this time, this is being reported as a minor injury collision.

Seems to be lots of folks either not paying attention or have got that “long covid” neurological pathology. Or it could be that cardiac damage seen in that 1 000 person study that was referenced by the Editor in the Journal of Radiology. And no, I don’t make that up. Making things up is with DHHS, CDC and FDA.

By the way…if you want to rant about vaccines or politics, you need to go to the jail booking portion of RHBB. There are plenty of folks there who share your views, right or WRONG.

Absolutely! I lost my crescent wrench yesterday and the only thing I can think of is that the covid vaccine is responsible. I NEVER lose my wrench. I’ll continue looking today if cardiac damage doesn’t stop me….and, if I can find my shoes.

It was my friend. There was water on the road and he lost traction. Calm yourself.

Perhaps your friend should have slowed down some with water on the highway. It could have involved another car resulting in injuries or loss of life. That semi was in the right place at the right time!

I drove that stretch in the rain the other day. There was a thick layer of water on the road, perfect for hydroplaning. Apparently, some people seem to think that when the conditions are bad, you should drive faster.
