Patrick Herbstritt Victim in Willits Car Accident on Highway 101

Patrick Herbstritt Victim in Willits Car Accident on Highway 101Man, 38, Victim in Willits Fatal Collision

WILLITS (March 12, 2019)- A deadly 2-car collision involving a big rig was reported Sunday morning before noon in northbound Highway 101.

California Highway Patrol officials were dispatched to the crash site at 11:50 a.m. where a big rig and a Saturn collided.

Authorities have confirmed that Patrick Herbstritt, 38, of Laytonville, accompanied by two children, 2 and 5, had been headed southbound before entering northbound lanes directly into a big rig driven by a 29-year-old man.

At this time, it is unclear what caused Herbstritt to lose control as investigators are unsure if there was a mechanical issue with his vehicle or if he simply lost control.

The aftermath of the crash tragically left Patrick Herbstritt with fatal injuries. He was pronounced at the scene upon the arrival of emergency dispatchers.

Boys 2 and 5 Airlifted to UC Davis Med Center

The two children in Herbsritt’s vehicle sustained major injuries. Both the 2 and 5-year-olds were flown to UC Davis Med Center, where they remain hospitalized.

Meanwhile, the driver of the big rig was uninjured.

Accident Investigation

While authorities investigate, the family of Mr. Herbstritt as well as his two minor occupants may have the right to pursue a wrongful death and personal injury claim pending the results of the collision.

CHP is currently investigating the accident.
