No injuries after SUV drives into sign at Farmers Market in Hoquiam

A man told officers he must have fallen asleep before his vehicle drove into the portable sign at the Farmer’s Market on State Route 101 yesterday afternoon. Hoquiam Sgt Brian Dayton tells us his 2000 Ford Escape drove through the sign, and came to rest on a the guide wire for a nearby power pole just after 4 Tuesday afternoon. The Grays Harbor PUD was called to repair the damaged guide wire.
The 38 year old Hoquiam man said he was on his way home from work and might have dozed off, he didn’t remember negotiating the curve. Dayton said no drugs or alcohol were thought to be involved, the man told officers he suffers from a medical issue that can cause vertigo.
