Drugs or alcohol suspected in a crash early Monday on Highway 106 south of Belfair that severed a utility pole.
The Washington State Patrol says a 2019 Honda HRV was westbound on State Route 106 about 12:30 AM. Near milepost 18, which is between E. Cedar Street and E. Alderwood Road, the SUV left the roadway and struck the utility pole and other objects. The highway was blocked for almost five hours.
A 32-year-old Allyn man was airlifted Sunday morning after his truck hit a tree and utility pole on Highway 3 near Krabbenhoft Road.
The Washington State Patrol says the 2006 Ford F-250 pickup truck was southbound on State Route 3 about 4:30 AM. Near Krabbenhoff Road, the truck failed to negotiate the right hand turn and crossed the northbound lane striking the tree and utility pole. The Ford rolled and came to rest on its tires in the northbound lane. The driver was ejected from the truck.
Two people on a motorcycle were airlifted after a crash with an SUV on U.S. Highway 101 south of Brinnon.
The Washington State Patrol says the 2016 BMW R1200 Motorcycle was southbound on 101 just before 3 PM. As the bike approached Canal View Street (milepost 311 – 4 miles south of Brinnon), a northbound 2003 Toyota Sequoia SUV making a left turn to Canal View struck the motorcycle.
The highway was block for two hours and 15 minutes.
Two people were arrested Thursday morning after an assault near Matlock led to a standoff.
According to Mason County Chief Deputy Ryan Spurling, deputies responded to the 3700 block of West Beeville Loop Road about 3:30 AM after a man allegedly attacked his parents.
When deputies arrived, the suspect grabbed his daughters (ages 2 and 5) and ran into a trailer.
Deputies also noticed ammunition and a fire arm when they arrived but both were missing after the man barricaded himself in the trailer. That is when the SWAT Team was called in.
The standoff ended when the suspect surrendered.
More than 30 animals were rescued from a home off Somers Drive Thursday in an animal cruelty case. The Mason County Sheriff’s Office says 27 cats, seven chickens and two horses were rescued from the property with the help of Pasado Animal Rescue from Snohomish County and Hooved Aminal Rescue of Thurston County. However, one horse had to be euthanized.
Chief Deputy Ryan Spurling told MasonWebTV Powered by HCC deputies received pictures and information on the conditions of the animals on the property. “The horse that we saw in the photographs – probably the worst I’ve ever seen as far as malnutrition and neglect.”
