Fatality Accident Near Montesano
An accident on SR 107 south of Montesano left one dead Friday morning.
The Washington State Patrol reported the closure of the road at the bridge over the Chehalis River near Mary’s River Lumber.
The 37 year old Cosmopolis man was driving a 1989 Toyota pickup when Sheriff Rick Scott said that he lost control in the icy conditions. When the vehicle left the road he hit a tree and went over an embankment.
Scott said that the bridge has a history of icing up rather quickly.
