On Sept. 10, a cyclist veered off a steep, winding road in the hills near Salt Point State Park in northwest Sonoma County then fell nearly 50 feet down an embankment, landing in a creek. Timber Cove firefighters responded to the crash. A REACH helicopter whisked the cyclist to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital’s Level II trauma center, designated in year 2000. Trauma cases like this one happen every day in the five counties served by the trauma center: Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Napa and northern Marin.
