One injured in one-vehicle rollover wreck south of Forks

Driver taken to hospital

FORKS — One person was injured after a single-vehicle wreck on U.S. Highway 101, 36 miles south of Forks over the weekend.

Christon R. Rasmussen of Castle Rock, 35, was transported to a hospital after the wreck at 6:10 p.m. Saturday, according to the State Patrol. Neither Forks Community Hospital nor Grays Harbor Community Hospital listed Rasmussen as a patient Sunday afternoon.

Rasmussen was driving a 2010 Nissan Maxima southbound on U.S. Highway 101 at milepost 153 when the vehicle drifted to the southbound shoulder causing the vehicle to roll, according to the State Patrol.

The vehicle, which was destroyed, landed on its top in the southbound lane and the engine compartment caught fire before being extinguished by a civilian.

The driver was trapped upside down in the car until she was extricated by emergency responders.

There were no drugs or alcohol involved in the wreck and Rasmussen was wearing a seat belt.
