Three injured in SR 101 highway shoulder accident

The Tacoma News Tribune reports that three people were injured in a two-vehicle accident on U.S. Route 101 south of Delphi on Saturday afternoon.

According to the Tribune, a man from Graham was examining his VW Golf that was parked on the highway shoulder when a Ford pickup truck driven by a 55-year-old Shelton man hit him and crashed into the VW. The impact of the collision caused the Ford truck to roll where it landed on its top.

The driver of the Ford was injured along with the driver of the VW and a passenger seated inside the VW at the time of the crash. All three were taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia. No information was provided on the condition of the injured.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, nearly 2,000 people are killed each year in highway shoulder accidents. A moving vehicle hitting a parked vehicle cause some of the worst accidents on the highway. It is recommended that a driver should pull off the highway if at all possible.
