Trailer rolls over, impedes traffic for four hours on U.S. Highway 101

BRINNON — An Allyn man has been cited for driving too fast for conditions after he failed to turn on a curve and has his trailer tip over into the oncoming lane.

Douglas H. Russell, 75, was driving southbound along U.S. Highway 101 at about 4:07 p.m. Sunday when he failed to navigate a curve to the left and his travel trailer tipped on the side and into the northbound lane.

Russell’s 2008 Chevrolet Uplander had reportable damage and was towed from the scene, while the trailer was totally destroyed, according to a State Patrol report.

Russell was taken to Mason General Hospital with minor injuries Sunday evening, and he had been discharged as of Monday afternoon, according to a hospital spokesperson.

Traffic was reduced to one lane with alternating traffic along U.S. Highway 101 near milepost 303 for four hours and 16 minutes Sunday night, State Trooper Chelsea Hodgson said.
