FORKS — A 23-year-old Beaver man reported only a sore back after his car drifted off state Highway 110 and overturned on the side of the road about 6 miles west of Forks on Thursday morning, a State Patrol spokesman said.

The one-car rollover wreck was at about 8 a.m. Thursday at the intersection of state Highway 110 and Goodman Mainline Road west of Forks, Trooper Russ Winger said.

John Robinson was driving east on Highway 110 when his 1992 Acura sedan drifted onto the shoulder of the road for unknown reasons, left the asphalt and flipped onto its roof, Winger said.

Robinson was not seriously hurt in the wreck, Winger said, adding that an ambulance crew checked him out.

“[Robinson] had a sore back, he said,” Winger added.

Robinson was cited for driving on the shoulder.

Winger said drugs or alcohol were not a factor in the wreck.

Robinson was taken to a private residence by a Clallam County sheriff's deputy who, along with a State Patrol trooper, arrived at the scene, Winger said.
