One person airlifed after rollover south of Mount Walker

BRINNON — A Port Angeles woman was airlifted to a Seattle hospital after a one-vehicle rollover on U.S. Highway 101 south of Mount Walker that shut down the highway in both directions for about two hours.

Passenger Marissa L. Graham, 19, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after the 7:15 p.m. Thursday wreck. She was reported in serious condition in the intensive care unit (ICU) on Sunday.

The driver, Bryce R. Chastain, 21, of Sequim transported himself to Jefferson Healthcare in Port Townsend, the State Patrol said. His condition was not available on Friday or Sunday.

Chastain was driving a 1995 Honda Passport southbound on U.S. Highway 101 just south of Mount Walker when the vehicle struck the embankment and rolled several times, coming to rest on its top in between the northbound and southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 101, according to a State Patrol memo.

Chastain was cited for “speeds too fast for conditions,” the memo stated.

Both Chastain and Graham were wearing seat belts, according to the memo. Drugs or alcohol were not involved.

The vehicle was declared completely destroyed.
