QUILCENE — A Vancouver, Wash., woman was injured Monday when the pickup truck she was driving lost control on U.S. Highway 101 south of Quilcene, the State Patrol said.
Stephanie L. Boothe, 30, was traveling southbound near Mount Walker when she swerved to avoid an animal, causing the 2006 Dodge Dakota she was driving to lose control and leave the roadway in a broadside skid, troopers said in a State Patrol collision report.
The pickup came to a rest on its side in a wooded area near milepost 302, troopers said.
Boothe was taken to Harrison Medical Center after the 5:06 a.m. wreck.
She had been discharged from the Bremerton hospital by Monday afternoon, Harrison spokesman Scott Thompson said.
There were no other occupants in the pickup.
Boothe was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, and drugs and alcohol were not involved, troopers said.
