FORKS — Four people were injured after a two-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 101 in Forks.
State troopers responded to a wreck reported at 3:55 p.m. Saturday in Forks after a driver attempted to pass a vehicle that was making a left turn, according to a memo from the State Patrol.
Antonio Lopezarmas of Forks, 37, was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado southbound behind a 2019 Kia Forte that was turning left.
According to the memo, Lopezarmas then attempted to pass in the northbound lane, striking the Kia Forte on the front driver side fender, causing the Kia to stop on the southbound shoulder after hitting an embankment.
Lopezarmas and his two passengers were taken to Forks Community Hospital as a precaution. The driver of the Kia, Laura E. Merrit of Seattle, 43, was injured and transported to Forks Community Hospital. Her passenger was uninjured.
An official at the hospital would not release patient conditions Sunday.
