Driver Arrested, 28-Year-Old Woman Injured after Grand Mound Multi-Vehicle Crash
GRAND MOUND, WA (March 9, 2020) – On Wednesday near Centralia, a 28-year-old unidentified female sustained injuries in a 5-vehicle crash on 5 Freeway.
WSP reports stated that the authorities arrested a driver after speeding down 5 Freeway at 100 mph, and causing a multi-vehicle crash.
Troopers and medics arrived on the southbound lanes of 5 Freeway around 4:00 p.m., between Grand Mound and Centralia. They responded upon receiving reports of a multi-vehicle collision.
The five-vehicle crash involved a white Nissan, a pickup truck and a semi-truck.
The initial investigation revealed that the southbound Nissan driver was making erratic lane changes when he rear-ended the pickup. As a result, the collision caused the pickup to veer off the road and overturn.
Meanwhile, medics transported the female driver of the pickup after suffering from hip pain. However, there were no other injuries reported in the collision.
State troopers later described the Nissan driver as a man in his 20s. He was arrested on scene and later booked into jail for investigation of vehicular assault.
In addition, the collision also shut down one lane of southbound 5 Freeway as crews conducted the cleanup and investigation. However, the road has since reopened.
