1 Injured in Custer Auto Accident on Birch Bay-Lynden Road and Rathbone Road

 
CUSTER, WA (January 11, 2022) – Sunday night, authorities arrested Akash Kumar following a traffic crash on Birch Bay-Lynden Road.
 
The authorities received reports of the crash at around 8:50 p.m. Moreover, it occurred on Birch Bay-Lynden Road and Rathbone Road.
 
North Whatcom Fire & Rescue Fire (NWFR) Chief Jason Van der Veen confirmed that they responded to a car versus semi-truck crash. When they arrived, they found the semi-truck and its trailer in flames. They also located the passenger car about 300 feet away with its engine separated.
 
Meanwhile, NWFR personnel extricated the driver of the car. Then, they transported the patient to PeaceHealth St Joseph Medical Center under advanced life support protocol.
 
Also, the semi-truck driver managed to get out from the vehicle without injuries. Moreover, Van Der Veen confirmed that the trailer filled with cattle feed was totally destroyed.
 
Meanwhile, the investigation revealed that the semi truck traveled west on Birch Bay-Lynden Road. Meanwhile, the 2019 Toyota C-HR coupe drove west when it crashed with the semi-truck. As a result, the passenger car driver sustained possible broken bones.
 
At this time, the authorities do not believe that drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash. Also, the Toyota have crossed the centerline and ended up crashing head-on with the semi-truck.
 
Thus, the authorities charged the 28-year-old Toyota driver, Akash Kumar of Blain, with reckless driving.
 
At around 9:40 a.m. the next day, the road reopened.
 
When behind the wheel of a vehicle, it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of yourself and others around you. Moreover, it is important to always drive within the posted speed limit. Also, slow down if you see traffic stalling ahead to avoid hitting other vehicles.
