What to do if you’ve been in a car accident
A tractor-trailer hauling logs rolled over Monday and scattered logs across northbound Interstate 5 in Lewis County, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Troopers say four vehicles were hit by logs. Two people were injured: the 49-year-old McCleary man driving the log truck, and a 33-year-old Tacoma woman in a separate vehicle. Both were taken to Providence Centralia Hospital.
About 2:45 p.m. Monday, troopers say the tractor-trailer was headed south on I-5 near Centralia when it failed to slow for traffic and made a quick lane change. The truck rolled over as a result and scattered its load over the freeway median into the northbound lanes.
The logs struck another tractor-trailer, a Toyota Camry, a Mazda 3 and a Mitsubishi pickup truck.
A 67-year-old Lacey man in the Toyota Camry was not injured, according to the State Patrol.
