The Washington State Patrol is hoping to talk to witnesses to an incident Tuesday in which a 50-year-old Gig Harbor man driving a Dodge pickup allegedly rammed another vehicle on US Highway 12 two miles east of Montesano.
The pickup driver was injured and taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital in Aberdeen. He faces a second-degree assault charge, according to the state patrol.
About 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, the pickup driver and a 59-year-old Seattle man in a Subaru Crosstrek were westbound on US 12 near Monte Brady Road. That’s when the Gig Harbor man rammed the Subaru.
The Seattle man pulled over to call 911, then the pickup driver pulled in front of the Subaru to call as well. He then allegedly put his pickup in reverse, ramming the car again.
Anyone who saw the incident is asked to call the state patrol at 360-473-0300.
The Seattle man was not injured and neither was his female passenger.
