An accident on the Avenue of the Giants occurred near Women’s Federation Grove (just south of the Honeydew exit from 101). A motorcycle and a minivan collided with at least one fatality. There is at least one lane closed and possibly the entire road is blocked. Avoid the area on the Avenue and be extra alert on the 101.
SoHum Awareness: Update: Roadway clear.
