Port Angeles woman hurt in wreck on U.S. Highway 101 east of Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES — A Port Angeles woman has been treated and discharged from Olympic Medical Center after she was hurt in a two-vehicle collision.

Janet A. Fuller, 62, on Friday afternoon was transported to OMC after the 3:46 p.m. wreck at milepost 251 of U.S. Highway 101 — about 1.5 miles east of Port Angeles, according to State Patrol.

Fuller was driving a white 2001 Mercury Mountaineer four-door sedan eastbound followed by Jaimie R. Strutz, 24, of Sequim, who was driving a white 2002 Saturn SL1 four-door sedan, according to State Patrol.

Fuller reportedly slowed her vehicle and was struck from behind by Strutz.

Both were wearing their seat belts at the time.

Strutz was uninjured, while Fuller was transported via ambulance to OMC, where she was treated and discharged, the on-duty nursing supervisor said Saturday.

The State Patrol said the cause of the wreck was following too closely and that charges are pending.
