CARLSBORG — Two Port Angeles residents were injured in a three-car wreck on U.S. Highway 101 west of Carlsborg on New Year’s Eve.

Teya N. Wall-Goakey, 21, and passenger Tobias M. Thomas, 22, were taken to Olympic Medical Center after a chain collision at 5:06 p.m., according to State Patrol Trooper Jason Fallon.

Both were treated for their injuries and released, according to an OMC official.

The trooper’s report said Wall-Goakey, 21, driving a red 1993 Geo Metro, and Robert E. Nelson, Jr., 54, of Port Orchard and driving a 2004 Chevrolet pickup truck, were eastbound and slowed for traffic turning left at Milepost 258.

Joyce A. Allen, 62, of Sequim was following in a 2003 Toyota Echo and struck Wall-Goakey’s Geo Metro, which then hit Thomas’ truck.

Login Teall, 2, secured in a child car seat in the Geo Metro, was not injured and was released to the custody of a relative.

All of those involved were wearing seat belts, Fallon said.

Inattention, speeding

The cause of the wreck was inattentive driving and speed too fast for conditions, he said.

Neither drugs nor alcohol was suspected as being a factor.

Allen was cited for second-degree negligent driving, Fallon said.

The wreck caused a long backup in the eastbound lanes on 101 as emergency responders treated the injured riders and troopers investigated.
