Hoquiam man rear-ended by log truck near Humptulips

A 76-year-old Hoquiam man was transported to Grays Harbor Community Hospital after the 1984 Chevy Blazer he was driving was rear-ended by a log truck on Highway 101 near Humptulips at around 10:30 a.m. Monday, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Information about his condition was not available.

The uninjured driver of the 2006 Peterbilt truck, a 29-year-old Elma man, was cited for following too closely, according to a State Patrol press memo.

The collision occurred when the Hoquiam man was traveling north on 101 and slowed down to make a left-hand turn onto Walker Road. The log truck was unloaded at the time of the collision, and both drivers were wearing their seat belts. The State Patrol is still investigating the accident.
