SEQUIM — One man went to a hospital and a portion of Hendrickson Road was blocked for about an hour after a collision Wednesday morning.

The driver of a small passenger car ran into the back of a pickup truck, causing the airbag in his car to deploy, at 10:05 a.m., said Patrick Young, Clallam County Fire District No. 3 spokesman.

The driver was taken to Olympic Medical Center for possible head and back injuries, said Young, who described the wreck as minor.

The occupants of the truck were not hurt, Young said.

The names of those involved were not available Wednesday afternoon.

Deputy Chief Sheri Crain of the Sequim Police Department said both drivers were between 70 and 80 years old.

Hendrickson Road was closed between North Fifth Avenue and Garry Oak Drive for about an hour.
