A dog in the road and a couple of drivers following too close was the cause of a multiple-vehicle wreck on US Highway 12 East of Aberdeen yesterday. The Washington State Patrol said the 4-vehicle collision was reported in the Eastbound lanes just after 5:30 Monday evening.

A 2015 Chevy Silverado truck had stopped near the Lemay’s transfer station for a dog on the highway and was rear-ended by a 2005 Chevy Suburban that was following too close to react. A 2008 Buick Enclave behind the Suburban was able to stop in time but was rear-ended by a 2001 Ford Expedition.

The only injury reported was a passenger in the Suburban, a 51-year-old Aberdeen woman who was transported to Community Hospital in Aberdeen with undisclosed injuries.

The 39-year-old Hoquiam man driving the Suburban, and a 29-year-old Aberdeen man driving the Expedition were cited for following too close.
