PORT LUDLOW — Two people were hurt in a wreck involving a semitruck and a Honda Civic on state Highway 104 on Tuesday.
East Jefferson Fire-Rescue spokesman Bill Beezley did not identify the people — one of whom was taken to a Seattle hospital and the other to a Bremerton hospital — because of privacy concerns.
The wreck occurred just before 2:30 p.m. Traffic was blocked until just before 4:30 p.m., according to Beezley.
A semitruck headed east on Highway 104 near Shine Road veered off to the right of the highway, went through a guardrail and slid roughly 200 feet down in the woods, coming to a stop by a creek, Beezley said.
Beezley said investigators did not know Tuesday afternoon why the truck swerved.
A silver Honda Civic also was found at the scene after colliding with a guardrail.
The driver of the Honda Civic was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Beezley said a helicopter landed on the highway to pick up the woman, who had suffered a head injury and multiple fractures to her lower body.
The driver of the truck was driven by East Jefferson Fire-Rescue crews to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton with moderate injuries, according to Beezley.
The wreck was under investigation by the State Patrol, he said.
