The victim of the August 18th fiery crash just south of Garberville has been identified as Aaron Melanson (age 32) of Southern Humboldt. Melanson was driving his prized 2005 Infinity G35 southbound just past Garberville when the car went off the road and over a cliff. The vehicle landed on its wheels about 150 off the highway and caught on fire.
Melanson was well liked by many in the community and will be missed.
