Both lanes of Briceland Road were closed temporarily as fire personnel extracted both trapped parties from the vehicle. Due to the collision, the passenger, Michael Lyon, age 59, was transported to Jerold Phelps Community Hospital, by ambulance, for treatment of injuries sustained in the collision. Alexander Lyon was arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Jail in Eureka on suspicion of DUI.
