State Patrol: Crash caused by medical issue

FORKS — A Forks man suffered minor injuries after his pickup strayed off of U.S. Highway 101 on Monday morning and rolled five times before coming to rest.

Andrew J. Hoschar, 33, was transported to Forks Community Hospital with minor injuries, according to a State Patrol press memo.

Hoschar’s blue 2016 Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck was totalled, the State Patrol said.

The cause of the wreck was a medical issue although it remains under investigation, according to the memo.

Hoschar was northbound on Highway 101 at milepost 193 when he crossed over the centerline, into the southbound lane and into the southbound ditch, where the truck rolled five times, according to the memo.

Highway 101 was blocked for about an hour following the wreck, the State Patrol said.
