Wishkah resident dies in car accident north of Shelton

October 31, 2012

The Washington State Patrol says a man and a woman died when a tractor-trailer collided with a car on U.S. Highway 101 north of Shelton.

The State Patrol says the driver of a Honda Accord lost control Tuesday and the car spun, crossing the center line and colliding with an oncoming Kenworth truck hauling two empty flatbeds.

The 57-year-old truck driver was unhurt in the crash near Potlatch State Park.

Mason County Coroner Wes Stockwell has identified the deceased as 51-year-old Mary Irene Johnson of Hoodsport and 52-year-old Richard Lee Bieniek of Wishkah. Both were in the car.

The road was blocked for several hours. The State Patrol is investigating.
