BLYN — Several people escaped serious injury in a five-vehicle wreck on U.S. Highway 101 on Wednesday evening.
The wreck at 4:09 p.m. near Old Blyn Highway was a chain reaction, State Patrol Trooper Russ Winger said Thursday.
A 2006 Chevy Suburban driven by Brian Priest, 51, was headed eastbound and swerved as traffic was slowing, and to avoid a dump truck he recorrected and hit a Mercedes, which caused it to hit two more vehicles.
Priest’s community of residence was not immediately available.
One person was taken to Jefferson Healthcare as a precaution, Winger said.
Priest will be cited for driving too fast for the conditions, according to Winger.
The scene of the wreck was cleared by 6:35 p.m. Wednesday.
Further detail about the wreck was not immediately available Thursday.
