Failure to yield right of way sent an 82 year old Elma woman to the hospital.

A 35 year old McCleary man was driving east on Highway 12 in his 2004 Jeep Wrangler when he attempted to turn onto Schouweiler Rd.

The Washington State Patrol tells KXRO that as he crossed the westbound lanes, he struck the 82 year old woman driving west in a 2002 Kia Spectra. The car was forced off the road from the collision, striking a light pole.

The Elma woman had to be transported to the hospital for her injuries, and both vehicles were towed from the scene.

The Grays Harbor PUD and the City of McCleary have coordinated a planned power outage which will impact PUD customers east of Elma to the McCleary city limits. The outage will begin at 11:45 pm on April 12, and will impact customers for 10 hours.

During the outage, multiple PUD crews will undertake maintenance work on transmission lines, including the replacement of five deteriorating power poles.

The outage will impact PUD customers on the Elma-McCleary Road from the Grays Harbor County Fairgrounds to the McCleary city limits. All customers on the Cloquallum Road will be impacted, including those on the Upper Falls Creek, Bush Creek and Powers Creek Roads and customers on the Stamper Road from Cloquallum Road to Upper Falls Creek Road. All customers off the Elma Hicklin Road will be impacted, as will customers on Heise Road, Rosemary Lane North and South and McKnight Road.

In preparation for this outage, customers are advised to take precautions with any electronic equipment and leave them disconnected until after the power has been fully restored.

The outage time of 10 hours is only an estimate and power could be restored at anytime as work is completed.
