State Patrol: Bee causes driver to crash on Highway 101 in Carlsborg

CARLSBORG — A bee that flew into the open window of an SUV reportedly caused a woman to wreck a Honda CRV on U.S. Highway 101 in Carlsborg on Wednesday, the State Patrol said.

The 60-year-old Port Angeles woman, whose name was not available, told troopers that the bee caused her to swerve in and out of the westbound lanes before the front driver’s side of the vehicle hit a tree near Joslin Road, State Patrol spokeswoman Chelsea Hodgson said.

The driver was taken to Olympic Medical Center with chest and possible pelvic injuries, Hodgson said.

“She’s stable,” Hodgson added.

The wreck was reported between mileposts 260 and 261 at 11:34 a.m.

The right westbound lane was blocked until 2:22 p.m., the state Department of Transportation said.
