2 injured in crash on Centralia I-5 onramp

July 13, 2013 

Speed is believed to be a factor in a crash on an Interstate 5 off-ramp near Centralia that left two injured Friday afternoon, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Daniel R. Miller, 72, of Rochester was driving a 2002 Ford Explorer south on the Exit 82 off-ramp at 3:57 p.m. when he struck a 1999 Toyota pickup being driven by Kenneth C. Floyd, 62, of Rainier.

Floyd was stopped at a red light behind a 1990 Ford F-250 pickup and a 1997 Plymouth Voyager.

The momentum from the collision pushed Floyd’s pickup into the F-250, which in turn struck the Plymouth, the State Patrol said.

Floyd was injured and taken to Providence Centralia Hospital. Miller’s passenger, Cheralyne Miller, 72, of Rochester, was also injured and taken to the hospital.

No one else was hurt. The cause of the crash was determined to be speed.
