Joyce: 2-car wreck knocks out power to 500

One person was slightly injured and about 500 Joyce residents lost power for an hour Sunday morning following a two-vehicle collision on state Highway 112 just past Gossett Road.

The Washington State Patrol said a Ford Taurus driven by Charles F. Jackson, 77, of Port Angeles and a Cadillac Eldorado driven by Pearl G. McCarthy, 65, of Neah Bay, were westbound on Highway 112 about 11:20 a.m. when the crash occurred.

When the Taurus stopped to turn right, it was struck from behind by the Cadillac. The Taurus left the roadway, shearing off a power pole.

Jackson was treated at Olympic Memorial Hospital and released. McCarthy was not injured.
