Jami Pfau Injured in Smith River Bicycle Crash on Highway 101

Smith River, California – Jami Pfau sustained minor injuries when her vehicle collided with a bicyclist on U.S. Highway 101 in Smith River Thursday morning, according to CHP.

The bicyclist suffered moderate injuries.

The two collided at around 11:02 a.m. July 23, as Pfau was driving her 2019 Ford Fusion southbound on U.S. Highway 101. 

Pfau was traveling towards the Dr. Fine Bridge when she drifted into the shoulder and hit Tanner Smith, who was riding his bicycle south on the south shoulder of the highway.

The collision happened just north of Dr. Fine Bridge.

After the crash, Pfau went up the embankment and rolled over onto the roadway.

Emergency crews responded to the incident and attended to the two parties. They were both taken to Coast Hospital for treatment of their injuries.

CHP said alcohol and/or drugs were not suspected to be factors in the accident.

The investigation is ongoing.
