At about 1:50 p.m., Thomas Scott Grooms, 22, of Port Angeles, was traveling eastbound on U.S. Highway 101 near Milepost 272, when his 2000 Ford R10 pickup truck hydroplaned, spun out of control, crossed the centerline and struck an oncoming black 1989 Honda Civic driven by Noah Thomson Kercher, 33, of Spokane, State Patrol Trooper Keith Nestor reported Sunday afternoon.
The pickup truck continued westbound and came to a rest on a dirt easement off of the eastbound shoulder facing east.
The Honda continued eastbound off the roadway into a ditch
Kercher was transported to Olympic Medical Center, and Grooms was not injured, according to the report.
Grooms was cited for “speed too fast for conditions.”
