Semi Hits Fences & Trees

A semi truck went through fences and struck trees on Highway 3 near Mill Creek Road Wednesday morning.

According to a Washington State Patrol press memo, the 2016 Peterbilt track and trailer were northbound on State Route 3 about 10 AM. Just north of Mill Creek Road, the driver failed to negotiate a curve to the left and the semi went off the roadway, down a small embankment, through fences and struck multiple trees.

The driver, a 42-year-old man from Burlington, was taken to Mason General Hospital in Shelton.
