DISCOVERY BAY — A 51-year-old Quilcene man was charged with second-degree negligent driving after he fell asleep at the wheel and drove a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass into a ditch, power pole and private fence on U.S. Highway 101 in Jefferson County on Monday, the State Patrol said.

Roger Dean Mallicott was driving southbound when the car crossed the northbound lane near Crocker Lake Road near Discovery Bay and struck a culvert, went airborne and collided with a telephone box and power pole before coming to a rest in a private fence, troopers said.

Mallicott was taken to Jefferson Healthcare with unknown injuries. His condition was not immediately available.

Mallicott was wearing a seat belt, and drugs or alcohol were not factors in the wreck.

The collision occurred near Milepost 287 at 12:23 p.m.
