PREVIOUSLY: Another Two-Car Collision on Henderson Sends Three to the Hospital


Press release from the City of Eureka:

On November 07, 2023, at about 2:04 p.m., officers from the Eureka Police Department (EPD) as well as personnel from Humboldt Bay Fire (HBF) responded to the report of a two-vehicle traffic collision at the intersection of Henderson and Union Streets in Eureka. It was reported that one vehicle, a Ford SUV, had overturned and the occupant was still trapped inside.

HBF was able to remove the driver from the overturned vehicle who was then transported to a local hospital by City Ambulance for moderate to serious injuries.

The second vehicle, a silver Honda Sedan, had come to rest atop a brick fence in the yard on the southwest corner of the intersection. The driver and passenger of this vehicle were both 15 years old and able to self-extricate from the vehicle. Both suffered moderate to serious injuries and were transported by City Ambulance to a local hospital for treatment. At this time, Intoxication does not appear to be a factor in this collision.

This is an active investigation and EPD is asking if anyone witnessed the collision to please contact Sergeant Jonathan Eckert at 707-441-4081. EPD is specifically wanting to speak to the driver of a white vehicle that was stopped at the stop sign on Union Street at Henderson at the time of the collision.

The Eureka Police Department want to thank our community for its patience yesterday as we investigated these traffic collisions and for those that have provided us valuable information.
