Two people were injured when a truck drove up a ramp and struck a car that was on a tow truck North of Ocean Shores early this morning. The Washington State Patrol reports the tow truck was prepping a disabled Honda Fit to be removed from the narrow-shoulder of State Route 109 about 5 miles north of Ocean Shores at 3:42 am Thursday when a 2007 Ford F150 pickup drove up the ramp and struck both vacant vehicles while their drivers were nearby preparing to leave.
The driver of the truck, a 57-year-old Hoquiam man, transported himself to the hospital before being airlifted to Harborview Medical Center. The driver of the tow truck, a 30-year-old Ocean Shores man, was transported to Community Hospital in Aberdeen with undisclosed injuries. The driver of the Honda was not injured.
The Hoquiam man was charged with failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.
