The incident happened at about 9:30 p.m. on Dillard Road, just east of SR 99.
According to reports, a 27-year-old Ukiah resident drove a 2017 Nissan Rogue west on Dillard Road. Witnesses added that the driver followed too close and made an unsafe passing maneuver.
Meanwhile, a 37-year-old Wilton woman and her child traveled in a 2016 Nissan Altima east on Dillard Road.
