Port Angeles man rolls car near Sappho

SAPPHO — A Port Angeles man was treated and discharged from Olympic Medical Center after rolling his car on U.S. Highway 101 near Sappho.

Jaeden A. Moore, 21, was airlifted to OMC in Port Angeles after the 2:29 p.m. Thursday wreck, the State Patrol said in a memo.

The State Patrol said he was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Moore was traveling northbound near Milepost 203 when his 1989 Toyota pickup crossed the centerline, left the roadway on the southbound shoulder, rolled and came to a rest on its top down the embankment, the State Patrol said.

He was wearing a seat belt, the State Patrol said.

A hospital spokesperson said he was treated and discharged.

His car was completely destroyed, troopers said.

The roadway was blocked until 4:35 p.m., according to the state Department of Transportation.

A state jury on Wednesday awarded the Lummi Indian tribe $595,000 over the collapse of the net pen where Atlantic salmon were being raised, an event that elicited fears of damage to wild salmon runs and prompted the Legislature to ban the farming of the nonnative fish.
