Truck Crashes into Canal

A truck ended up in Hood Canal Friday after the driver fell asleep. The State Patrol says the Chevrolet 1500 pickup was southbound on U.S. Highway 101 about 5 PM. Just south of Hoodsport, at milepost 333, the truck left the highway to the left, went over an embankment and landed in the Canal.

The driver, Mary C. McCallum, 61 of Olympia, was transported to Mason General Hospital as a precaution. The tide was low so the truck wasn’t completely submerged.
