Brinnon: California teen dies in crash on U.S. 101

BRINNON — A 13-year-old California boy was killed and two people were seriously injured Saturday morning when a pick-up truck collided with a motorhome on U.S. Highway 101 near Brinnon.

The boy, identified as Steven Meier of Healdsburg, Calif., died at the scene when the truck he was riding in apparently crossed the center line and collided with a motorhome, the Washington State Patrol reported.

The truck’s driver, Jonathan P. Meier, 52, and another passenger, Cheryl L. Meier, 46, both of Healdsburg, were airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

A nursing supervisor at the hospital would not release their conditions Saturday evening.

The driver of the motorhome, Arthur H. Ealy, 70, and his passenger, Virginia M. Ealy, 67, both of Naches, were treated at the scene for injuries, the State Patrol reported.
