Washington State Troopers responded Friday afternoon to a serious injury collision at U.S. Highway 101 in Shelton involving two cars and a log truck.
The crash occurred just past noon Friday near Brockdale Road, about 3 miles northeast of the Washington State Patrol Training Academy. Trooper Russ Winger tweeted that at least four people were injured, some critically.
Washington State Patrol reports that a car had entered northbound 101 to go southbound, causing a collision with an SUV that was pulling a utility trailer. The trailer then broke free and collided with a log truck.
A 20-year-old female was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Two other people, including an 11-year-old boy, were transported to Providence St. Peter Hospital. Another person was transported to Mason General Hospital.

The log truck driver was not injured, according to Winger.
