Wreck west of Lake Crescent leaves one hospitalized, one jailed on warrant

A Spanaway man was airlifted to a Seattle hospital — and a Tacoma man was arrested on a felony warrant — after a car rolled on U.S. Highway 101 near Snider Road about eight miles west of Lake Crescent on Thursday.

Christopher T. Bill, 30, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with fractured ribs after the wreck, which was reported at 7:17 a.m., the State Patrol said. His condition was unknown Thursday evening.

Raymond H. Clark, 28, was booked into Clallam County jail for allegedly violating parole stemming from an assault conviction, the State Patrol said.

He received minor bumps and bruises in the wreck, but was not hospitalized, troopers said.

The driver of the 2000 Chevrolet Impala, Mark A. Williams, 32, of Tacoma, was not injured.

The State Patrol attributed the rollover, which occurred when the car drove into a ditch, to fatigue.

The car was heading westbound at the time.

Charges are pending, the State Patrol said.
