Lincoln Street Accident Sends Hoquiam Woman to Hospital
An accident on Lincoln Street in Hoquiam this morning closed one lane and sent a Hoquiam woman to the hospital.
A 45 year old Hoquiam woman driving a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer was southbound on Lincoln Street when the accident occurred. A 40 year old Aberdeen man, driving a full size 1993 Ford Van, was turning into the 7-11 parking lot. According to Hoquiam Police Sergeant Strong, his view may have been obstructed due to a log truck in the center lane. When he turned across the southbound lane, the 2 vehicles struck head on.
The southbound lane was blocked for approximately 45 minutes following the accident. Traffic was diverted onto side streets and into the northbound lane.
The Hoquiam woman was transported to Grays Harbor Community Hospital for neck and back pain. The Aberdeen man and his passenger were uninjured.
The 40 year old driver was cited on scene for making an improper turn as well as additional traffic violations.
