Only one minor injury is reported following this morning’s crash between a semi and a bus on Highway 101 between Ukiah and Hopland. Witnesses say the bus, which was heading south, crossed over into the northbound lane and crashed into the side of the truck. There were no passengers on the bus, which is used to transport farm workers. The driver of the bus had some cuts to his head and face and was taken to Ukiah Valley Medical Center. The CHP says while they are still looking into why the bus swerved, they do not suspect alcohol or drug intoxication.

The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an early morning shooting in Laytonville that is so far being characterized as a home‑invasion robbery. A spokesman tells the Press Democrat deputies went to the home on Woodruff Road around 7am. The shooting victim is expected to survive. There is no information on a suspect or what they were trying to steal.

Officials still do not know the identity of a man killed in head-on crash Friday morning in Ukiah. The Sheriff’s Office says the man was burned beyond recognition and the coroner will need to use dental records or DNA to officially identify him. Investigators say the man was speeding north on North State Street when for some reason his car crossed the centerline and slammed into an oncoming SUV, injuring four people. But the car kept going and hit a fence and a power pole before crashing into a parked Jeep and bursting into flames.

U.S. Cellular has made a $10,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Ukiah to provide K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering and Math educational opportunities. U.S. Cellular says they are funding Boys & Girls Clubs and 4-H Clubs throughout the their markets to deliver STEM enrichment programs and the Ukiah donation is part of an overall $1.3 million program across the country. In addition, last year, U.S. Cellular associates volunteered at more than 225 Boys & Girls and 4-H Clubs around the country and they say this year they pledge to do 35,000 hours.

The general trout opener is Saturday, April 29. The CA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife says given California’s significant snowpack and run off, many rivers will be experiencing swift and cold water conditions which can be dangerous, so they remind anglers to be cautious when fishing streams or rivers for the opener. Given the potential high water conditions, they suggest focusing on lakes and reservoirs may be the best bet. Most lakes, rivers and streams have a limit of five trout per day and 10 in possession but regulations do differ on season dates, bag limits, minimum and maximum size limits, and gear restrictions.
