Semi truck drives over woman in East Hoquiam crosswalk

HOQUIAM, Wash. – The investigation of an accident on the East side of the Simpson Avenue bridge in Hoquiam this afternoon will require the re-route of Eastbound traffic over the Riverside bridge.
E-911 dispatch tells us DOT crews are planning the detour to accommodate the investigation. An eye witness to the accident tells us a woman in a wheelchair was crossing 22nd street in Hoquiam when a semi truck for Ocean Gold seafood turned onto Simpson Avenue driving over the woman in the crosswalk and dragging her about 75 yards.
Our source tells us the cries of witnesses were what got the attention of the driver who stopped with the woman and her chair still pinned under the semi.
Hoquiam police and State Patrol will be investigating to determine a cause and whether any charges will be filed. The status of the woman is not being released at this time.
Eastbound State route 101 traffic will be detoured over the Riverside bridge for several hours this afternoon.
