Tuning a Radio May Be Cause of Fatal Crash

New details have emerged about what may have caused a fatal acci­dent on High­way 101 that killed a father and his 3-year old daugh­ter last week. The dri­ver who hit the fam­ily on High­way 101 just south of Burke Hill Road may have been play­ing with the radio. The pos­si­ble involve­ment of drugs or alco­hol in the acci­dent was also still under inves­ti­ga­tion. The dri­ver was booked at the Men­do­cino County Jail on the day of the acci­dent on sus­pi­cion of vehic­u­lar manslaugh­ter, posted $50,000 bail. The mother and 1-year-old daugh­ter, who were pas­sen­gers in the car that was hit, sur­vived the crash and were taken by ambu­lance to Ukiah Val­ley Med­ical Cen­ter with minor injuries.
