BEAVER — A Seattle woman was transported to Olympic Medical Center on Saturday after another vehicle attempted to pass her on U.S. Highway 101 northeast of Forks.
Charles P Diaz of Puyallup, 40, was cited for second-degree negligent driving after he attempted to pass Jenny A. Hammer while driving eastbound on Highway 101 at milepost 208, according to the State Patrol. The wreck was reported at about noon.
Diaz, driving a Ford F-150, lost control on the icy roadway, spun and struck the Honda Fit driven by Hammer.
Both vehicles left the roadway to the south, rolling into the ditch.
The Ford stopped on its side against a tree and the Honda stopped on its wheels. Both vehicles were totaled.
