A Laytonville man has been killed in an accident on Hwy 101 that may have been a case of DUI. The CHP says around 1030pm Tuesday the driver, whose name has not been released, was northbound on Hwy 101 just north of the Covelo turnoff when he lost control on a curve, ran off the road, and hit a tree. He was dead at the scene. His passenger has major injuries and was taken to Howard Memorial in Willits. The CHP says impairment and speed were likely factors.

A supplemental disaster-funding package for Californians affected by wildfires has been introduced in Congress. On Tuesday Speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced the $81 billion package would be added to congress’ Continuing Funding Resolution. Congressman Mike Thompson says while he was happy the resolution is being considered, he called it unfortunate that the Republican leadership is “playing political games” and tacking it on to their end-of-the-year spending package instead of having a straight up or down vote. Thompson says he will keep working toward that.
