The CHP Incident Page is reporting a two-vehicle collision in Arcata along Highway 101 near the Sunset Avenue offramp. The accident was reported just before 5:30 p.m. on July 26th.
Occupants from both vehicles are outside of the vehicles, one reportedly with blood on their person. An ambulance has been requested along with a tow truck.
The vehicles involved are reported to be two SUVs; a Chevy Tahoe with major front-end damage and a red SUV with major rear-end damage. Both vehicles are reported to be off the roadway, but debris is scattered at the scene of the accident.
A Redheaded Blackbelt reader said that traffic is moving slowly through the area while the CHP Traffic Incident Page stated that traffic was backed up to Highway 299. The #2 lane was reported to be blocked by fire personnel at 5:42 p.m.
Update: The CHP is now listing this as a major injury accident with two subjects being taken to a local area hospital.
