UKIAH, CA (November 22, 2023) – Thursday morning, one man was fatally injured in a head-on accident on Highway 253.

The collision happened at around 10:58 p.m. in the westbound lanes of the highway, just east of Stipp Lane. 

According to CHP, the 2020 Honda Civic going west veered into the opposing traffic lanes for unknown reasons.
