A man in Willits has been hit and killed by another car after coming around a corner on Highway 20. The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office, Willits Fire Dept. and others on the scene Sunday night finding that driver David Amador was westbound on SR-20 just outside Willits. They say he was moving at a high rate of speed and lost control of the Honda CR-V he was driving and missed a curve, came off the road and into a fence, then down a dirt embankment where he hit a tree then the car rolled. The man was dead at the scene, but since there was heavy fog in the area, the accident scene was not seen until the next morning. The Ukiah CHP, deputies, firefighters and VeriHealth got to the scene within 2 hours. They extracted the man from his car. They say they do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor.

Congressman Jared Huffman speaking out on the government shutdown, says he’d be shocked if more money were offered up for a border wall. He and Congressman Mike Thompson head back to the nation’s capital to pass a new funding measure to end the 12 day old shutdown. Apparently they’re ready to take the president to task for his signature campaign promise to put up a concrete wall and have Mexico pay for it. Thompson says he expects there to be a unanimous vote by House Democrats and Huffman says there would be an insurrection if any money went to a wall. The president has not signed any funding measure until he gets $5 billion for the wall, House Democrats are at $1.3 billion for border security. The president also previously said he’d take responsibility for the shutdown, but has been blaming Democrats, then earlier today tweeted to House Speaker designate Pelosi — “let’s make a deal”.
