Two people were injured – one seriously – in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 3 at Agate Road Saturday afternoon.
The Washington State Patrol says a 2006 Ford Ranger pickup truck westbound on Agate Road pulled in front of a 1991 Toyota Camry that was northbound on State Route 3 about 12:30 PM. The vehicles collided in the northbound lane, blocking the highway for about four and a half hours.
The driver of the Toyota, a 23-year-old Shelton man, was taken to Mason General Hospital in Shelton and then airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. A press memo says he was not wearing a seat belt.
The driver of the Ford, an 85-year-old Longview man, was transported to St. Michael Medical Center in Bremerton.
The press memo also indicates that the cause of the crash was failure to yield on the part of the Longview man and he faces charges.
Both vehicles were totaled.
