West End: Forks woman dies in crash –

FORKS — A 68-year-old woman was killed Tuesday afternoon when her car struck a loaded logging truck on U.S. Highway 101.

The fatality marked the second road death in less than 24 hours on the West End.

Betty J. Mohr of Forks was pronounced dead at the scene two miles north of Forks near milepost 195, the State Patrol reported.

No one else was injured in the crash, Trooper Glen Tyrrell said.

Mohr was southbound on Highway 101 about 3 p.m. when her 1999 Saturn station wagon crossed the center line and hit the northbound logging truck head-on, according to a Washington State Patrol report.

The cause of the collision is unknown, Tyrrell said.

Mohr and James D. Kreider of Port Angeles, who was driving the Kenworth log truck, were both traveling alone, Tyrrell said.

The truck sustained about $10,000 damage but was still driveable, the State Patrol reported.

Mohr’s Saturn was totaled.
