Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Philip D. Adams, a 69-year-old Port Angeles resident and a Jamestown S'Klallam tribal elder and longtime Peninsula College counselor, was killed in a motor vehicle crash at the north end of Lower Elwha Road west of Port Angeles, the Clallam County Sheriff's Office said.

Sheriff's Office deputies and a Lower Elwha tribal police officer responded to the north end of Lower Elwha Road to investigate reports of a vehicle over the embankment.

When they arrived, they found a pickup truck over the embankment near Full Moon Trail.

Adams, the truck's sole occupant, was unresponsive inside the truck. The crash occurred between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. Saturday, deputies reported.

Volunteers from the Dry Creek station of Clallam County Fire District No. 2 attempted to resuscitate him, but Adams was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash was investigated by a Washington State Patrol team that was assisted by a sheriff's deputy.

Adams retired from the Peninsula College staff in 2010.
