Three people were injured after a motor home collided with a semi tractor-trailer on Interstate 5 near Chehalis Tuesday morning.
Donald E. Rodgers, 66, of Shelton was driving north in the left lane of the interstate in a motor home next to a semi truck at around 10:53 a.m., according to a Washington State Patrol news release.
