State Patrol: U-turn causes Highway 104 wreck

CHIMACUM — The State Patrol said a Seattle-area woman was driving under the influence when she attempted a U-turn on state Highway 104 on Saturday, causing a wreck that disrupted traffic for several hours.

Wendy L. Mohr of Algona, 45, was driving westbound in a Subaru Forester with four juveniles inside Saturday when she attempted a U-turn in front of a vehicle that also was driving westbound near milepost 3, according to the State Patrol.

The second vehicle, a Dodge Ram pickup driven by Dustin V. Larson of Port Angeles, 28, then struck Mohr’s vehicle and both vehicles came to rest in the westbound ditch, causing traffic disruptions for nearly five hours.

The wreck was reported at 3:03 p.m. Saturday 22 miles east of Sequim.

Mohr was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center and released the same day, said Trooper Chelsea Hodgson. An official at Harborview Medical Center said Sunday she could not find records that Mohr was there.

The four juveniles in the vehicle, ranging from 3 years old to 16 years old, were all transported to Jefferson Healthcare as a precaution.

The State Patrol said charges are pending for Mohr.
